version of OS

Hi ,

what is the command to find the version of OS running on a unix box?

Thanks.
# 2  
Look around /proc for a file aptly names kernel. Cat it Smilie

...of course, your box may be configured differently than mine.
# 3  
I don't have that file in /proc. all the files in that directory are accessible only with root permission
# 4  
Code:
uname -a

should work.
# 5  
yeah its working. Thanx a lot...
