Hey Spencer!

If you want to know the Kernel/distro version of Linux then there is a simple solution for this. You can use "uname" command to know the version.

Here is an example "uname -arv" or "uname -r"

The above command well tell you kernel or distro version of the Linux.

This is a simple way to find out that what version of your Kernel or distro have. I have also used the same command to know my kernel and distro version.

I hope it will help you to know the kernel or distro version of your Linux.

Thanks

Hi there user:

Type this command ($ cat /etc/*-release) when you get to the shell prompt, if you want to find if it’s a Distro version.

Type this command ($ uname –a) and/or ($ uname-mrs) when you get to the shell prompt, if you want to find if it’s a Kernel version.

Here’s the output for Distro version: DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu DISTRIB_RELEASE=7.10 DISTRIB_CODENAME=gutsy DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION=Ubuntu 7.10

Here’s the output for Kernel version: Linux 2.6.32-5-amd64 x86_64
