It can be useful to know the version number of the kernel (i.e., the core of the operating system) on a particular Linux system.
Not only is it instructive in itself, but it can also be helpful in diagnosing and upgrading systems because each release of the kernel contains some differences, sometimes minor and sometimes substantial.
A fourth method is to look at the contents of the dmesg command, which is used to report information about the system as it boots up (i.e., starts up).
Because dmesg generates a large amount of output, it is convenient to first transfer that output using a pipe (represented by the vertical bar character) to the grep filter with the word Linux as an argument in order to display only lines that contain that word (and thus the kernel version information) as follows: The disadvantages of this method are that it requires some extra typing and that there is still a lot of output to search through even though it has been greatly reduced through the use of the grep filter.
The MAC is responsible for the timing and the time critical decisions only.
The PHY performs the 802.11 PHY functions of encoding/decoding and modulation/demodulation, and is responsible for the RF functions of up/down modulation to carrier frequency, filtering and amplification.
A fifth method is to look in directories in which the kernel or its source code (i.e., the original version as written by humans in a programming language) is kept.
There can be differences among systems, and some systems might not contain the source code.
The kernel (which is the core of the operating system and has complete control over everything that occurs in the system) is trusted software, but all other programs are considered untrusted software.
Oracle says that the system must have at least 512MB of RAM and 1GB of swap space or twice the size of RAM.
And for systems with more than 2 GB of RAM, the swap space can be between one and two times the size of RAM.
Here's a screenshot: Anyone know of any solutions to this, or whatever you did if you had the same problem?
