Distribution version of RedHat
To whom it may concern,

How can I know the distribution vesrion of my Redhat Linux? Is there any configure file record the Linux is RH8.0, 9.0 or AS3 ?

Best regards,

Moved: More suitable in our Redhat forum.

Check the file usually named redhat-version in /etc or something along those lines.

In a terminal window type
cd /etc
cat redhat-release

[twilli@localhost twilli]$ cd /etc
[twilli@localhost etc]$ cat redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)
[twilli@localhost etc]$
