NAME
lsb_release - print distribution-specific information SYNOPSIS
lsb_release [options] DESCRIPTION
The lsb_release command provides certain LSB (Linux Standard Base) and distribution-specific information. If no options are given, the -v option is assumed. OPTIONS
The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`--'). A summary of options are included below. -v, --version Show the version of the LSB against which your current installation is compliant. The version is expressed as a colon separated list of LSB module descriptions. -i, --id Display the distributor's ID. -d, --description Display a description of the currently installed distribution. -r, --release Display the release number of the currently installed distribution. -c, --codename Display the code name of the currently installed distribution. -a, --all Display all of the above information. -s, --short Use the short output format for any information displayed. This format omits the leading header(s). -h, --help Show summary of options. NOTES
This is a reimplementation of the lsb_release command provided by the Free Standards Group. Any bugs are solely the responsibility of the author below. Detection of systems using a mix of packages from various distributions or releases is something of a black art; the current heuristic tends to assume that the installation is of the earliest distribution which is still being used by apt but that heuristic is subject to error.
