How to find general informations of your Linux computer

In a script or in a terminal, you can get some informations with the command : uname.

To know the name of your computer, you can use :
uname -n

You can print the kernel name with :
uname -s
In general, the result is « Linux », but the result will be different if you use other UNIX systems, such as SunOS for instance.

uname -r

uname -a
