I know about uname, have you seen the signature I've been using for
quite time, now? The answer's actually a script output, not boilerplate
But uname only shows the currently running kernel, it doesn't help with
installed kernels. e.g. I installed the i686 kernel, and several
updates to it actually do update it. But when I tried to install a
kernel module (that bloody NVidia thing), it wanted to install an i586
