What version of Redhat am I running?

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

Every once in awhile I find myself asking the question of what version of Redhat is installed?

The login prompt tells you but if you access several systems, this information gets ignored.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.7 (Tikanga)
Kernel 2.6.18-274.el5 on an x86_64
login:

Rather then logging off and back in, you can review a file which will have the version information.

$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.7 (Tikanga)
$
