Slackware version


Hello,

I have a question that I hope someone can answer.

I need to find the slackware version my server is running?

Apparently I hosed the /etc/slackware-version file as well, this is why I need help.

Thanks!

Yes, unless you installed a later kernel, that would be Slackware-13.37.

This is a catchall command, but it works on most distros, including Slackware.

Code:
$ cat /etc/*release*   <---That's the catchall
NAME=Slackware
VERSION="14.1"
ID=slackware
VERSION_ID=14.1
PRETTY_NAME="Slackware 14.1"
ANSI_COLOR="0;34"
CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:slackware:slackware_linux:14.1"
HOME_URL="http://slackware.com/"
SUPPORT_URL="http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/"
