Subject: getting the running patch level
I would like to know if there is a command or a way to retrieve the "patch level" (the handbook defines it "builds names" like 7.0-RELEASE-p1) of the running system: just an example, if I run:
# freebsd-update fetch
No updates needed to update system to 9.0-RELEASE-p4
The following files will be updated as part of updating to 9.0-RELEASE-p4:
but this give me no info about the current system; I tried a brief search in config file but no luck;
again the question is:
is there a way to determine for a running server which "patch level" is currently at ?
