I upgraded to Freebsd systems from 7.0 to 7.2
on the first one, done May 25th, I use the generic kernel
$ uname -a reports: 7.2-RELEASE #0
on the second one, done 3 days later (May 28th)
on this system I also build and installed a custom kernel after upgrade.
$ uname -a reports: 7.2-RELEASE #1
Why is this different? (#0 versus #1)
What does #Number actually mean: is this the same as -pNumber used in
the mails from @daily root freebsd-update cron
"The following files will be updated as part of updating to X.Y-RELEASE-pNumber"
If not, what is the difference ?
what's the difference between version, level, patchlevel,
'release level', 'version level of a release' (any others ?), ...
