Linux is a integral part of my business and ou don’t have to have followed my blog too closely to know my favorite linux distro is Debian GNU/Linux. Presently though, I’m playing around with Kubuntu as well.
I have seen linux distro information displayed in various software packages I have installed. Naturally, I wanted to be able to find Linux version for myself.
Now that I have it figured out, I thought I would list a few.
- To see the name and kernel from the command line, you need to type:
test:~# uname -a
- To see the name, style, and version from the command line, you need to type:
test:~# cat /etc/issue
- You can see both from the command line, by typing:
test:~# uname -a && cat /etc/issue
Hopefully this will help someone other than myself.
