is there a way to find out which version of FreeBSD was installed - and
for what architecture, simply by mounting the disk?
I am not talking about uname, where you have to be inside the os, but if
you simply mount the root partition to another computer, where to look
for these information?
linux has something like /etc/os-release, which is a textfile, is there
an equivalent [method] in FreeBSD?
grep -ir freebsd /mnt/etc did not reveal anthing, that might give a
hint. Or I have overlooked this.
Plattform would be more important than version, as latter one may at
least be guessed by date.
