..i just got my answer.. /etc/issue says RH6.2, I thought it might be.
But /etc/issue can be modified of course, so the question still stands
as to where to find the definitive answer. :)
This may seem like a really daft question, but, how do you tell what
distro a box is? I'm working on a server I set up a few years back but
I can't remember whether it's mandrake or redhat, let alone work out
which version it is. I had a quick look in /proc/sys/ but can only
find kernel type info. any ideas?
