Default openbsd'flavors

Hi,

When we administrate a new company that have OpenBSD Machines, how to know what is the OpenBSD flavor of the machines?

I type : uname -a, and view the /var/run/dmesg.boot.
I have only that :

OpenBSD Hostname 4.7 GENERIC#558 i386

How can i know if it follow 4.7 -Stable or Current ? or a simply release ?

Look at the output of the following command:

$ sysctl kern.version
  • If the flavor is -release, you will see "OpenBSD 4.7" in the output.
  • If the flavor is -stable, you will see "OpenBSD 4.7-stable" in the output.
  • If the flavor is -current, you will see "OpenBSD 4.7-current" in the output.
Information on what kernel configuration file was used during compilation, who compiled the kernel, & when it was compiled is included in the output as well.

also worth noting, in OpenBSD "flavor" refers to different flavors of a certain port. release, stable, and current are all "branches."
