- Here are a couple of ways of determining which versions of the kernel you have:
uname potentially provides the following information on the operating system:
# uname --help Usage: uname [OPTION]... Print certain system information. With no OPTION, same as -s. -a, --all print all information, in the following order, except omit -p and -i if unknown: -s, --kernel-name print the kernel name -n, --nodename print the network node hostname -r, --kernel-release print the kernel release -v, --kernel-version print the kernel version -m, --machine print the machine hardware name -p, --processor print the processor type or "unknown" -i, --hardware-platform print the hardware platform or "unknown" -o, --operating-system print the operating system
the output for uname -a is all one one long line, so it can be hard to decipher when one part ends and another begins. It is likely more useful to use the options one at a time.
# uname -m i686 # uname -p i686 # uname -o GNU/Linux # uname -s Linux # uname -r 2.6.18-128.el5xen # uname -v #1 SMP Wed Jan 21 11:55:02 EST 2009
