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 Use keyboard throughout firefox without mouse Download Pictures From Your Facebook Account with Pick&Zip Display Song Lyrics in Windows Media Player with Lyrics Plugin One-Step Bitly URL Shortening from the Address Bar About Author admin | Website | Twitter Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
