This is a personal note. This lets you check Ubuntu’s version number. Run the command ‘cat /etc/lsb-release’.
[code lang=“bash”]tkw@deathnode:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release
My blog has pretty much become a scrap book.
To find Red Hat or CentOS linux version number use:
[code lang=“bash”]tkw@redhat:~$ cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 4.8 (Final)[/code]
jer added that this is a better alternative:
[code lang=“bash”]lsb_release -a[/code]
