Re: Kernel version

Hi,

Unlike linux, HP-UX does not have versions for kernel. OS version is the kernel version too.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: Kernel version

Hi...
As the above post say HPUX doesn't have a kernel version.

you can use 'uname -r' to know the version of the HPUX installed.

The following will help you to know more about the OS installed.

#swlist -l bundle |grep -i hp-ux

Re: Kernel version

Hello

for level opf kernel you must view the path of vmunix
try this:
what /stand/vmunix

The output is the level of kernel.with swlist you can view the level of system release too.

Re: Kernel version

Shalom,

No, there is no numbered version system like with Linux.

HP-UX kernel is compiled and in some respects is unique based on what drivers and patches have been included.

uname -a still works.
