Default checking upgrade worked?

Hello, just playing with upgrading 6.2 to 6.3 in my virtual machine install of freebsd and all seems to have gone ok except this:

Quote:
uname -a
FreeBSD freebsd-6.2 6.3-RELEASE-p9 FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE-p9 #1: Fri Feb 6 16:40:50 GMT 2009 root@freebsd-6.2:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386
It seem to still have some ref to 6.2 or is this because i upgrade from 6.2?

cheers

Isn't that the hostname?

Indeed, the format of uname -a is:

sysname hostname release version platform arch ident
