How to check what Linux am I running?


hi, i am a newbie here and here's my question.

I am running Red Hat ES , how do I check my version? When i do a :

uname -o --version
uname (coreutils) 5.2.1
Written by David MacKenzie.

uname -o
GNU/Linux


it does not really tell what red hat es version I am running.

Thanks.

If i'm not mistaken, uname -a will print all the information (except the -p and -i options) about including the "-o". So, you will get the Operative System but not the release/version of that operative system
