How do I determine the kernel version I am currently running?
I am trying to get wireless working under Slackware 10.2 on a spare laptop I fixed. I need to know what kernel version I am running. Is there a command to determine what version of a kernel you are running?
Under /boot/grub there are two files one named 'vmlinux' the other 'vmlinux-ide-2.4.31' what is the difference between calling one versus the other at boot time. Obviously, 'vmlinux-ide-2.4.31' is kernel version 2.4.31 but what version is 'vmlinux', because in my menu.lst file this is the one I have called?
