How to tell what version of linux CentOS you are running

Most newbies ponder the question, “what version of redhat am I actually running?”.

# uname -a

will give you a load of useful information; but not, say, “CentOS 4.3″.
It is rather simple, simply type the following command (without #):

# tail /etc/redhat-release

This will output something like: CentOS release 4.4 (Final)

And you’re good to go!
