Trovare la versione attuale di linux in uso su tutte le distribuzioni

rhev

rhev

il comando per trovare la versione distributiva
“echo /etc/*_ver* /etc/*-rel*; cat /etc/*_ver* /etc/*-rel*”

Se non si trova la versione i seguenti file possono essere utili:
/etc/issue
/etc/issue.net

Molte distribuzioni non Red Hat inseriscono /etc/redhat-release le informazioni di compatibilità

Esempio di script shell

#!/bin/sh

OS=`uname -s`
REV=`uname -r`
MACH=`uname -m`

GetVersionFromFile()
{
VERSION=`cat $1 | tr "\n" ' ' | sed s/.*VERSION.*=\ // `
}

if [ "${OS}" = "SunOS" ] ; then
OS=Solaris
ARCH=`uname -p`
OSSTR="${OS} ${REV}(${ARCH} `uname -v`)"
elif [ "${OS}" = "AIX" ] ; then
OSSTR="${OS} `oslevel` (`oslevel -r`)"
elif [ "${OS}" = "Linux" ] ; then
KERNEL=`uname -r`
if [ -f /etc/redhat-release ] ; then
DIST='RedHat'
PSUEDONAME=`cat /etc/redhat-release | sed s/.*\(// | sed s/\)//`
REV=`cat /etc/redhat-release | sed s/.*release\ // | sed s/\ .*//`
elif [ -f /etc/SuSE-release ] ; then
DIST=`cat /etc/SuSE-release | tr "\n" ' '| sed s/VERSION.*//`

REV=`cat /etc/mandrake-release | sed s/.*release\ // | sed s/\ .*//`
elif [ -f /etc/debian_version ] ; then
DIST="Debian `cat /etc/debian_version`"
REV=""

if [ -f /etc/UnitedLinux-release ] ; then
