Firstly, it's "kernel". You can use the command "uname -r".

Sorry, I guess there's some sort of language barrier or
terminology issue going on here...

Do you need to see the kernel version or the linux distribution?


uname -a
will give you ALL the detail for the kernel that can be found.


As for the distro: you can probably find info in /etc

E.g. Slackware has an /etc/slackware-version
The *buntus and other LSB compliant distros have /etc/lsb-release
SuSE (I think, can't get to it right now) has /etc/SUSE-version



Cheers,
Tink

openSUSE appears to have /etc/SuSE-release.

Must be a language problem, can't get much easier that uname -r

Redhat and CentOS also have /etc/redhat-release , for what it's worth.

To me it doesn't look like a language problem, if it were a language problem whatever they would post would still be coherent in some way, it would look like something that comes out of an online translator. What I see here comes out of a spam bot.
