How Can I Determine What Level/SP Of Sles I am running?

I installed SLES SP3 but would like to verify that the install was successful. How can I display this information.

I tried to install another pgm after installing SP3 and the system responded that SP3 was not installed. I need to know how to find out if I really am at SP3 or..if the new install program is not detecting SP3 properly.
Thanks.

Hi K,

You should check kernel version,perform command "uname -r", SP3's kernel version should be 2.4.21-138-smp. If kernel version exactly, you should compare rpm version between os was installed and sp3 cd.

Hi,

Check /etc/SuSE-release (text file).
Good luck.

K,
You must keep one thing in mind: Installing SLES8SP3 by booting from th SP3-CD is only the first step. After installation has finished, you must mount the SP3-CD again and install SP3 over the fresh system.
