Looks like Debian


Thanks beowulf and evo.

I found a zero byte file in /etc/ called debian_version. Misleading, but then I found a /usr/bin/debconf which is debian for sure.

Now if I could just find the version.

I'll go to netgear's site to see what I can find (ReadyNAS NV+).

I want to install tcsh but they took out the dang apt-get as well as /usr/bin/tcsh.

Not sure why no one suggested: cat /etc/issue

Not meaning to needlessly bump an old thread, but if the OP has a ReadyNAS there's several RN-specific ways to check versions, work on SSH prompts etc. There's a bustling ReadyNAS user community at ReadyNAS.com, including some FAQs and forums (it's where I picked up the basics after I bought my ReadyNAS Ultra).

uname -a on my ReadyNAS Ultra 2 reports "Linux nas01 2.6.37.5.RNx86_64.2.1 #1 SMP Tue Mar 29 16:38:58 PDT 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux"; cat /etc/debian_version shows "4.0".
