that's a stupid question....
I want to be able to figure out RH version when I ssh to the box remotely. It doesn't show me the regular prompt stating the version.
When I do cat /proc/version it gives me
Linux version 2.4.7-10 (firstname.lastname@example.org) (gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.1 2.96-98))...it says version is 7.1.2 (which I can interpret as 7.1)
But I know in fact it is version 7.2.
When I use up2date it recognizes it as 7.2.
So if I can't erly on teh accuracy of cat /proc/version then how can I figure out the version using remote conenction?
