How to find Linux Kernel and release information


There are several commands to check Linux Kernel version and release information.

1. To check the Kernel Version

  • uname -v
2. To check Kernel Release
  • uname -r
3. To check system architecture
  • getconf  WORD_BIT
  • uname -m
4. To know every detail about system
  • uname -a
  • lsb_release -a
  • getconf -a

Please note that if you are aware of individual switches with each command, then it will be easy to use them in scripts.
