I am using CentOS 6.2. In the man page of uname (i.e.,
man uname), it says:
-r, --kernel-release print the kernel release -v, --kernel-version print the kernel version
While trying the command, it shows
[max@localhost ~]$ uname -r 2.6.32-220.17.1.el6.i686 [max@localhost ~]$ uname -v #1 SMP Tue May 15 22:09:39 BST 2012
-v should show the version, right? But where is it showing the version?
-r is showing the version detail.
Why is this so?
