Quick Tip to find out what Linux Distribution you are using

June 14, 2012

Here’s a useful command I have come across to find out what linux distribution and release you are using.

This works both on Debian based distro’s (deb) and Fedora based ‘distro’s (rpm).

To find out what linux distrubtion and release you are using you can use the command lsb_release: –

prompt> lsb_release -a

This is a pretty quick and easy tool to use, this could prove very useful!
