Please add an /etc/lsb-release file plus the /bin/lsb_release utility to
the standard
distribution. See


for mor information.
Comment 1 Daniel Roesen 2001-05-31 10:38:17 EDT
Seconded! :-)
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-05-31 10:54:15 EDT
Without implementing the rest of the lsb stuff, this wouldn't serve much

Comment 3 Gerald Teschl 2001-05-31 14:32:47 EDT
 Consider it a start;-) It does make sense to me, since it is a standard way of
figuring out
distrubution data in a standardized way.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2002-01-23 23:38:21 EST
Working on it for the next release.
