How out-of-date is my version of Linux?
Posted on 2007-10-17
This should be an easy question, I think. I have a dedicated server with a hosting company, and I think I'm about to change to another company that installs updates and patches and fixes for me without me needing to pay attention and request them. On my current server, when I run:
uname -a && cat /etc/*release (I found that in a Google search)
I get the following:
Linux bikramyogaomaha.com 2.4.18-27.7.xsmp #1 SMP Fri Mar 14 15:52:30 EST 2003 i686 unknown
Red Hat Linux release 7.2 (Enigma)
Simple question: can someone tell me how far behind I am in installing updates and security patches and the like?
