The ls command has some options that might be handy:
Code:

ls -l --time-style=long-iso
The long-iso keyword can be one of several, check the ls man page.

EDIT:

Some other examples to get you going:
Code:

ls -l --time-style=+%c
ls -l --time-style=+%F
ls -l --time-style="+%b %d %Y"

The format options can be found in the date man page.

Thanks a Lot for responding to my query.

Habitual 10-08-2012 09:13 AM

Code:

ls --time-style="+%b %d %Y %l:%M %p"  --color=auto
gives me this output:

Hi,

Thanks for sharing the command.

i want to know,is their any other command alternate to :

/etc/redhat-release to fetch the Linux version ?

redhat70 10-10-2012 02:52 PM

Hi,

# ls -l --time-style="+%b %d %Y %l:%M %p" --color=auto

their was no -l option in your output.

So i have added it.

redhat release
 
For alternative of
cat /etc/redhat-release

you may use
cat /etc/issue

I use Fedora, so I don't know if this works on Redhat, but to tell what kernel I am using I type
# uname -a
Linux rajhome2 3.6.1 #1 SMP Thu Oct 11 02:17:09 CDT 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Does that help?

Hi,

what does this output means :

# cat /etc/issue
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 (Tikanga)
Kernel \r on an \m


===================================

I want to know, what does Kernel \r on an \m ?

What does this mean ?

Your help is highly appreciable...

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Aparna.

Must be some kind of substitution that isn't happening. Can you do a
Code:

uname -a
at a command prompt? The -a option means all.

redhat70 10-13-2012 03:54 PM

#uname -a

Linux LOPASCO2.6.18-128.el5 #1 SMP Wed Dec 17 11:41:38 EST 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Rupadhya 10-13-2012 10:07 PM

I think that means you are running a Linux system with the 2.6.18-128.el5 kernel, compiled on Wed Dec 17 11:41:38 EST 2008 for the x86_64.

In general I find that
Code:

cat /etc/*release*
works on most distros.
Unfortunately there are distro dependent variations on the exact name of that file.

As you can see from the above, this gives you the distro version, uname gives you the kernel info.

For those that implement it, lsb_release may work.

I found this script somewhere. I am not sure where but, you can save it as ver_linux and then chmod+x ver_linux.
From the directory you have it saved in you can execute it by ./ver_linux.

Here it is...
Code:

#!/bin/sh
# Before running this script please ensure that your PATH is
# typical as you use for compilation/istallation. I use
# /bin /sbin /usr/bin /usr/sbin /usr/local/bin, but it may
# differ on your system.

PATH=/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin:$PATH

It checks a bunch of things for building software. I have run it a couple of times.
