How to find Service Pack level


Hi Guys,

A customer of mine has an issue using SuSe 9 on our hardware and I need to check what service pack version is being used on their SuSe build.

I haven't installed it yet (about to try) but just need to find out how to check this. It's probably dead simple.


Thanks!
Justin

There are no such things as S/P`s in SuSE, also 9 is no longer supported and is very old, are you sure it is SuSE9?

Yes I'm sure it's SuSe 9 and it turns out there is service packs for SuSe 9. I installed it today with SP3.

It wouldn't be common now because Suse 9 is so out of date.

Thanks
Justin

SP3 ? sure sounds like you're talking about SLES9 not SuSE9

if so try SPident, use -v for more verbosity IE SPident -vvv

also cat/etc/SuSE-release

You're right, my mistake. It is SLES 9, not SuSe 9 which explains why baskitcaise said there's no SP's for Suse.

Thanks a lot for the advice!!

If you want to check your kernel version type 'uname -a'
