Check Redhat version installed By admin On 20 August 2011 In How To Hello there! If you are new here, you might want to subscribe to the RSS feed for updates on this topic.Powered by WP Greet Box WordPress Plugin I was looking at how to tell the version of Redhat Linux installed on a machine from a command line. Mostly I used uname -a to view the server settings. Here is a sample: $ uname -a Linux myserver.mydomain.com 2.6.18-8.el5 #1 SMP Fri Jan 26 14:15:21 EST 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux It return the server kernel’s version: 2.6.18-8.el5 #1, but not something my mother could understand. To get a layman term, we can query file /etc/redhat-release instead. $ cat /etc/redhat-release Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5 (Tikanga) Incoming search terms:check redhat version (30)Comments comments Related Posts How To Get The New YouTube Homepage Right Now Before Everyone Else Fix for : Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand Disable Netware client to enable “Welcome screen and Fast user switching” in windows XP How to Add UbuntuOne Indicator to Your Ubuntu Panel About Author admin | Website | Twitter Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
