Commands to get CentOS 7 Kernel Version
In this tutorial we are going to learn how to get the kernel version of your CentOS 7 Linux computers.
So how do we find what version of Linux kernel our CentOS 7 server use?
Just like in any other Linux distribution uname -r command can be used to get CentOS 7 kernel version.
In CentOS 7 /proc/sys/kernel/osrelease file also contains the kernel information. We can read the file using cat command.
As you can see both commands print the same information. So you can use either “uname -r” or cat /proc/sys/kernel/osrelease command to get CentOS 7 kernel version.
