    Thanks.

    cat-bash-3.00$ cat /proc/version
    Linux version 2.6.9-023stab044.4-enterprise (root@rhel4-32) (gcc version 3.4.5 20051201 (Red Hat 3.4.5-2)) #1 SMP Thu May 24 17:41:23 MSD 2007
    -bash-3.00$ cat /etc/*release*
    Fedora Core release 5 (Bordeaux)

    So I suppose it is running Fedora Core 5?

    Now I just need to figure out how to get yum working. It is installed, but yum update always fails stating the repositories have 404 error and things of that nature (there are only two). For some reason even if I modify yum.conf it doesn't want to check the new repositories...at least now I know what version I am looking for..

    thanx a lot. i see your point now. in fact the result Superman859 just posted above is a perfect illustration of what you meant.

    yes you have Fedora and unfortunately i its not supported anymore. so im not sure you will find repositories for it. however if you find repo for F5 you can first test them with wget and if it works yum should be able to access them.
    Linux and me it's a love story

    The following should work, but what commands you use depend on the distro
    Code:
    cat /etc/*release
    cat /etc/*version
    cat /etc/lsb-release
    cat /etc/issue
    the lsb-release on Debian based distros shows the distro, release and codename. On other distros lsb-release shows the actual version of the lsb packages, so won't show distro versions.
