I have tried. Result:

"can't exec mount -u / for single user: No such file or directory"
ee: not found

About "ee" in the "FreeBSD command reference" I have tried this:
"This is a simpler alternative to 'vi' and is installed as part of the FreeBSD 
base system. However it may not always be available (there
is /rescue/vi for emergencies when /usr is not mounted, but no emergency 'ee')."

I have tried 'vi': not found

But in my /rescue 'vi' is listed and I have this message:
"no terminal database found"

I have tried. Result:

"can't exec mount -o rw / for single user: No such file or directory"
