I have two laptops and each have a different output from uname - And thus I gues a different version of Parrot - the first:
Linux xxxxxx 5.1.0-parrot1-3t-amd64 #1 SMP Parrot 5.1.3-1parrot1.3t (2019-05-20) x86_64 GNU/Linu
And the second has
Linux xxxxxx 4.19.37-parrot1-amd64 #1 SMP Parrot 4.19.37-5parrot1 (2019-06-22)
What does this mean? the first has a higher version number but older date?
so which build is which and how do I determine what versionI am running? (Yes I checked the Parrot documentation and I did not find anything about this topic).
Running parrot-upgrade on both does not bring either in-line with the other…!!!
Anyone care to enlighten me on how to tell which Parrot version I acutally have installed? Or is that just not possible…??
uname a gives kernel
the issue is that lorenzo often changes the version (the cmd im afk but its under helpme in our docs as lsb-release something) so often 4.7 is actually 4.6
Thanks rowie (btw that’s
/etc/os-release) - so I have v4.7:
PRETTY_NAME="Parrot GNU/Linux 4.7"
on both machines - but each has different kernels according to uname -a - I though the kernel upgrades were tied to the Parrot updates - but clearly not - this machine is showing:
Linux xxxxx 5.1.0-parrot1-3t-amd64 #1 SMP Parrot 5.1.3-1parrot1.3t (2019-05-20) x86_64 GNU/Linux
and the other (also a v4.7 in /etc/os-release):
'Linux xxxx 4.19.37-parrot1-amd64 #1 SMP Parrot 4.19.37-5parrot1 (2019-06-22)
So how does that work? Totally strange - dates are out of whack too.
does the Parrot build not dictate the kernel version?
BUT - (reference above post) - Parrot 4.7 is not yet RELEASED??!!
Im not sure that there is a “solid process” behind this - could I be right?
it depends on install. date and the iso that you use!
5.1 kernel makes many problems … and your sourcelist
