Nice one, rozzer :thumbup2:


One back at yer, if you are unaware of it, or for the viewers, is

sudo !!

... used if you type a command at Terminal, and don't realise, or forget, that it requires sudo.


It repeats the command with sudo and a space at the start, so you can just press Enter and enter your password.

One that most (if not all) of the 'regulars' will know, but perhaps not the newcomers to Linux, is the method for quickly finding out which kernel version you're running:-

uname -a

...will give kernel version, along with hostname, and machine architecture (i386, or x86_64)


If you simply want the kernel version, and nowt else, then it's

uname -r
