Talking What kind of Linux?


I have an Asus Eee 900 pc with Linux installed. Im trying to get Spotify and I think I must have Wine installed to run Spotify, is that correct?
When Im trying to download Wine I dont know what kind of version I have, Ubuntu or Debian or...
When I get into the system of the Eee I only get the biosnumbers and not the version of Linux.
Im totally new at this and my friends dont know much about it either.
I dont even know if this is a relevant question but I hope someone can help me.

Unhappy

When I write uname or uname -s, it only shows Linux, and nothing else.

Hi there!
Still got a problem, when I write uname -a it says: bla bla numbers bla bla date i686 GNU/Linux

Does that mean something to you guys?
The lines from repo responded with that no files or catalogs existed...

Do I really need Wine to run Spotify?

Post all of what "uname -a" says. We'll explain what it means.

As for Spotify. Yes you need Wine as Spotify doesn't have a Linux version. Have look here: http://www.spotify.com/en/help/faq/wine/

To check what Wine, if any, you have installed, just run "wine --version".
