    Lightbulb Kernel versions of different Linux distros


    Hey people,

    I am in process of creating a list of Linux distros with its kernel version. I searched the web... no luck. Sure, I do have kernel versions of recent Redhat, SuSE, and Ubuntu.

    Can anyone help me in finding a place where I can find such list???

    Thanking you in advance.

    I suggest going to distrowatch and going to each distro's page. Here you can find out each kernel version. For example, if you go to distrowatch and click on Ubuntu, it will tell you that edgy uses a 2.6.17, dapper used a 2.6.15, breezy used a 2.6.12, hoary used a 2.6.10 and warty used a 2.6.8.1

    Enjoy

    Be aware that it's possible that the kernel was updated automatically in the first boot, the kernels in Linux are not static

    Good point - distrowatch will give you the kernel version of a fresh install. Updates may change the kernel.
