Is there any way to identify the version of a FreeBSD installation when booted to a different FreeBSD or NetBSD installation?
With NetBSD, I can look under /<NetBSD-root-partition>/stand , always see i386 or amd64, but I don't see anything so good or dependable with FreeBSD.
/etc/motd doesn't always show this information.
uname only shows the actively running version.
In my case, I use UFS and GPT, so FreeBSD and NetBSD can read each other's partitions with no disklabel incompatibilities.
