Have you ever wondered what is your Kernel Version on your CentOS?

These are steps that I want to show you how to get your kernel version of your CentOS 6 Linux system.

So how do we can find out which version of Linux kernel on our CentOS 6 server that using?

Just like in any other Linux distribution uname -r command can be used to get CentOS 6 kernel version.

Code:
uname -r
get-CentOS-6-Kernel-Version.jpg

In CentOS 6 /proc/sys/kernel/osrelease file also contains the kernel information. We can read the file using cat command.
Code:
cat /proc/sys/kernel/osrelease
get-CentOS-6-Kernel-Version1.jpg

As you can see both commands print the same information. So you can use either uname -r” or cat /proc/sys/kernel/osrelease command to get CentOS 6 kernel version.
