    how do you verify the linux version?


    uname gives you the kernel version, I want to verify the linux version, for instance, I have Kali linux 1.07, I upgraded to 1.08 and I want to know if there is a way to verify that.

    Thanks

    open terminal

    Code:
    cd /etc
    Then

    Code:
    ls
    look through the list. Look for issue, os-release, issue,net. I am just mentioning ones I know of but I do not know what Kali has for files in /etc.

    then while still in /etc in terminal

    Code:
    cat issue
    or whatever other name is there like os-release or issue.net.
