    uname output


    Hello,

    I have a question. My kernel compiles have always been fine but one thing that I have a question about is the following :

    Linux [SYSNAME] 2.6.7 #5 SMP Thu Jul 15 07:12:40 BST 2004 i686 unknown unknown GNU/Linux

    Why does it report unknown unknown GNU/Linux

    What can I do to try and resolve that from occuring ?

    the two unknowns should display your:
    processor
    hardware platform

    uname --help output and my uname -a output
    Code:
    [ian@localhost ian]$ uname -a
    Linux localhost 2.6.8.1-10mdksmp #1 SMP Wed Sep 8 16:41:52 CEST 2004 i686 Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.00GHz unknown GNU/Linux
    [ian@localhost ian]$ uname --help
    Usage: uname [OPTION]...
    Print certain system information.  With no OPTION, same as -s.
    
      -a, --all                print all information, in the following order:
      -s, --kernel-name        print the kernel name
      -n, --nodename           print the network node hostname
      -r, --kernel-release     print the kernel release
      -v, --kernel-version     print the kernel version
      -m, --machine            print the machine hardware name
      -p, --processor          print the processor type
      -i, --hardware-platform  print the hardware platform
      -o, --operating-system   print the operating system
          --help     display this help and exit
