How to identify Slackware version by examining an installed system?
At my workplace we have at least two versions of Slackware installed on various computers. I would like to be able to quickly identify the version of Slackware used to create the Linux installed on a given computer by telnet to that computer, assuming I have a valid login and password.
I have used "uname -a" to get the following version from my personal Linux machine that I installed about a year ago using a Slackware 10.2 CDROM.
"Linux zzlinux 2.4.31 #6 Sun Jun 5 19:04:47 PDT 2005 i686 unknown unknown GNU/Linux" [Example.1]
According to the Slackware "man uname" page, the 1st and 3rd fields of the "uname -a" output are "kernel name" and kernel release" information. Is there perhaps some one-to-one relation between "kernel release" and the Slackware version, so I could use "kernel name" to determine the Slackware version? If so, please direct me to that mapping table.
In advance, thanks for your advice about this.
