Hi,

I have a diskstation and would like to know what linux flavour it is:

I ran the following command and got this:

DiskStation> uname -a Linux DiskStation 2.6.32.12 #2647 Wed Sep 26 03:18:29 CST 2012 armv5tel GNU/Linux synology_88f6282_212

But it still doesn't really get me further.

Thanks

See this list of distro release version files. If one of the files on that list exists, that should tell you what distro it is, and the contents of the file should tell you what version of that distro you're running.

Beside the excellent link that KJ4TIP posted, on modern systems with an up to date udev or systemd, you might also find /etc/os-release file with the basic distribution info. That might not be true on an embedded system, though.

Some distros also include lsb_release utility.

I know about cat /etc/issue This one works on all debian and ubuntu family distros. funnily /etc/issue gives me linux mint 13 and os-release gives me ubuntu 12.04 (still technically accurate, mostly). /etc/lsb-release is linux mint 13.
