Hi,

Run the following command on the terminal and post the output here:
Code:
uname -a && cat /etc/*release

It depends on which distro you use. anishakaul's command(s) might reveal that

Why did you say "might" ? Does the command fail in some cases ?

Not all distro follow your release example;

'uname -a && cat /etc/slackware-version' would be one example. So the 'might' is valid.

That was enlightening, thanks

Is there a command which works like a standard on all Linux distros ?
