Hi
After updating and upgrading a server running 12.2-RELEASE-p7 and got different versions for kernel and userland
Code:
# freebsd-version -uk
12.2-RELEASE-p7
12.2-RELEASE-p10
What is going on here?
Is this something to be concerned about?
and if so, what should be done to fix it?
Thanks in advance!

Had that too. It's nothing to worry about. Recently, there have been a few updates to FreeBSD, where only the kernel was affected and userland remained unchanged.

If you look at the list of files changed by an upgrade (when it tells you what it needs to do), you'll see that if freebsd-version is one of the files, then userland will be reported as updated - and have a new p-number.

If you see the kernel (/boot/kernel/kernel) as one of the updated files, then the kernel will have been updated - and have a new p-number.
