Helo !
Normaly, the "uname -rs" should tell you what OS you are running.
Another easy way will be "dmesg | head -10". Usualy it tells you enough informations about what OS and machine you are using.

No useful,

I already tried with uname -a

But its giving only "Linux", not which distribution of Linux.

Please any body help on this.
