this is a distro-specific question, since not all distros use the same packet management system (rpm,deb,tgz etc), so better provide some info about your distro.

Anyway in most cases you can also find this out by using the --version option in the executables

Code:
skalkoto@darkstar:~$ mysql --version
mysql  Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.18, for slackware-linux-gnu (i486) using  EditLine wrapper
What do you mean with linux?
linux is as a kernel or as a distro.

You can find out the kernel version with this command:
Code:
skalkoto@darkstar:~$ uname -r
2.6.15.3
skalkoto@darkstar:~$

...and the distro (and version) can be found in some *version file inside /etc; for example:
Code:
adoyle@dangermouse:~$ ls /etc/*version
/etc/debian_version               <-- tells me I'm running some version of Debian
adoyle@dangermouse:~$ cat /etc/debian_version 
testing/unstable                  <-- the version of Debian I'm running
The same holds for every distro I'm aware of; some (e.g. RedHat) combine both distro and version in an /etc/version file.
