Location of LM12 build number?

Postby RonC on Thu Apr 05, 2012 8:04 pm

Where in Lisa (Gnome3, main version) can one see its build number? In other operating systems, this may be displayed in the lower-right corner of the Desktop, or in some location accessed through the Control Panel.

Where may this be found?

mmm you can open the /var/log/xorg.0.log for specific system info, or open the system profile and benchmark application (however this app dont show the build number).
I think there is an command on terminal to show the build but i dont know it :(

uname -a shows you data about the Linux kernel. You can do lsb_release -a for other information about your system.

:) Thanks to everyone for the help.

I am looking for something that isn't there. I see version 12, and that much I already knew. It seems with LM there are no build numbers, or at least, there are none that one may see.
