How to check the version of Linux (Fedora, Ubuntu, or other issues)

leave a comment »

If we want to check whether a Linux is a Fedora, or Ubuntu, or SuSE or whatever, in command line, we can simply do like this:

1. go to /etc, search for the file with string “issue” or “release”
$cd /etc
$ls *issue* (ls *release*)

2. read the found file, e.g.:
$more issue
$more lsb-release


Note: This method applies in Fedora, Ubuntu. For other systems the blogger has not verified.
