What Version of Debian Am I Running?


On a Debian system, the file `/etc/debian_version’ contains the release name of the Debian installed.

Use cat to output the contents of this file (see Concatenating Text).

* To output the release name of the Debian system you are on, type:

$ cat /etc/debian_version

NOTE: Debian releases have historically been named after characters from the motion picture Toy Story.
