    Perhaps "uname -a" in linux_ver script should changed to
    "cat /proc/version"?

    The difference is that the latter shows the compiler used to compile the
    running kernel, which I gather is often quite valuable point of data:

    vherva@babbage:/home/vherva>uname -a
    Linux 2.2.15pre11 #1 SMP Fri Mar 3 22:37:53 EET 2000
    i686 unknown
    vherva@babbage:/home/vherva>cat /proc/version
    Linux version 2.2.15pre11 ( (gcc version
    pgcc-2.95.1 19990816 (release)) #1 SMP Fri Mar 3 22:37:53 EET 2000

    Many people have multiple versions of gcc (like I) and use different
    version to compile kernels (I usually do - this one accidentally got
    compiled with pgcc, but I decided to give it a shot just to see if there
    are problems more than usual. ;) )
