FreeBSD: fsck: Could not determine filesystem type

When FreeBSD fsck starts, it checks /etc/fstab file for the given filesystem type. If the filesystem entry is commented out, fsck will show the following error:
Code:
# fsck -y /dev/twed1s1
fsck: Could not determine filesystem type
# grep twed1s1 /etc/fstab
#/dev/twed1s1 /store2                    ufs     rw  2  2


Uncomment the line and fsck will detect the ufs type.

Obviously, there are other solutions, like specifying "-t ufs" flag, but in some situations this can fix a forgotten comment.

Also, there can be other causes to the above error. This is just one of the many.
