The idea is great. The procedure doesn't work, at least not on my
LFS systems anyway.
"uname -a" gives this:
Linux rmlinux 2.6.4 #1 Thu Mar 18 18:19:32 CST 2004 i686
AuthenticAMD unknown GNU/Linux
better would be: "cat /proc/version" which gives this:
Linux version 2.6.4 (rml at rmlinux) (gcc version 2.95.3 20010315
(release)) #1 Thu Mar 18 18:19:32 CST 2004
