redhat version with updates
uname -a in my case reveals this:
[root@sasquatch root]# uname -a
Linux sasquatch 2.4.21-4.EL #1 Fri Oct 3 18:13:58 EDT 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
does this mean ^^^^ (21-4) anything for instance some version of an update installed. In other words we need to know what update version is installed on our linux machine. We're tracking a problem with linux where Websphere 6.0 complains about certain update not installed and aborts.
