When you log in to a machine, how you know about the machine information? May be have dozen of way to do so, but usually i will using ‘uname’ to check:


when you enter uname without any switch, the generic kernel name will be shown in your term:


you can add another switch ‘-a’ to show all the system information:

uname -a

and this is what have shown when I enter this command on my PC:

Linux quantum 2.6.15-26-k7 #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Aug 3 03:40:32 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux

Yes! I’m using AMD processor ;p
