How to check Linux distribution and version?

If u are on an unknown server and keen to know it’s linux distribution info, you can check the linux distribution info by just a single command (eg. version, codename, etc). Just tested this command in UBuntu and CentOS, both return as what i expected. :)

To check linux distribution and version, follow the steps below:-

  • Start your terminal and enter the command below to show your the linux distribution info:-
    $ cat /etc/*-release
  • Here’s my result in one of my my Ubuntu box:-
    $ cat /etc/*-release
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=9.10
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=karmic
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 9.10"

    Cool right!
