Thanks for the clarification! I don't compile kernel, I only
installed 9.0-RELEASE and binary upgraded to 9.2-RELEASE using
freebsd-update. (I'm worried about the lifetime of the SSD in my
laptop so am trying to avoid compiling, but that's a side topic.)
I now totally deleted /usr/src (and /usr/obj), because I don't need
them now as I now install virtualbox from pkg.
But after rebooting, "uname -a" still shows 9.1-RELEASE. As mentioned
before, all files such as kernel etc are in 9.2, where does uname get
that incorrect version now?
I am a bit confused how 9.0-RELEASE came into the picture. Can you
show the output of top -n?
Sorry, just saw your reply. And sorry 9.0-RELEASE was my typo, I mean
I installed 9.1-RELEASE, but after binary upgrading to 9.2-RELEASE
using freebsd-update, most files show it's not in 9.2-RELEASE, but
uname still shows 9.1-RELEASE.
