Hi All,
small question for the linux crew - how do I make my system (IPCOP)
report the kernel version to me?

There was sposed to be a kernel change with the latest update and I'm
not sure the update rolled the kernel for me or not.

Cheers,
Chris

At a terminal, or using Konsole, type in either:

grep "version" /proc/version


OR

"vi /proc/version"

You should get info that looks like:

Linux version 2.6.13-15-default (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 4.0.2
20050901 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux)) #1 Tue Sep 13 14:56:15 UTC 2005


(To exit vi, hit <esc> twice and then type in ":q!")

It's shown at the bottom of the "system status" page using the web
interface.

My god, and this is the operating system you think is suitable for
general purpose use by non-geeks?

If it has not changed cd /bot/grub

more menu.lst and look for "default" it is normally 0 and points to the
kernel being booted/used, scroll down a bit and make sure the kernel you
want is the first one, if not exit, use an editor like vi and point
default at it, eg default=1.

then reboot.

Yep, instead of dumbing down users, teach them more, get them smart and
build confidence so they are not dependant on ****wits.

if you're going to look at /prov/version, you'd be better off doing:

cat /proc/version

instead of opening it in an editor.

Although the uname command is simpler, IMO.
