The last few days there were a lot of security patches which I installed using 

‘Freebsd-update fetch’ and ‘freebsd-update install’.

After rebooting the system there is a difference between the output of dmesg and freebsd-version.


A few questions.

Is the machine running the patched version so freebsd-version is the right output?

Is it possible to adjust the dmesg output? (And also motd etc….)


Thanks for your time!
