Re: about the os version


Build # 878 is release V4.0D.

To determine the correct information for any version of Tru64 UNIX:
# strings /vmunix | grep '(Rev.' | cut -f1 -d';'
Or use (For DU v4.0 or higher):

# sizer -v | cut -f1 -d';'


Attached an overview through 2001.

hth,

Re: about the os version

why not using "uname -a" and check the version number (in your case 878) with the table (have a look to Hein posting which seems to be from an HP internal use only page - but is also official available)

Another quick solution is to check the /var/adm/messages file containing the version ("Digital Unix 4.0D (Rev. 878)").

Re: about the os version

Somewhere in v4.0X stream, the sizer command got the option "-v"

f.i.
# sizer -v
Digital UNIX V4.0G (Rev. 1530); Thu Oct 31 15:57:29 MET 2002

If this option is not yet available, the strings on the kernel is the most easy one, because you don't need a table to convert the build number in a version-number

Woeps,

Sorry Hein, now I read that you already gave this solution.
