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

DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu

DISTRIB_RELEASE=9.04

DISTRIB_CODENAME=jaunty

DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION=“Ubuntu 9.04″

tkw@deathnode:~$[/code]

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]

Thanks!
