Uname isn't recognizing the -a option.


uname -a

uname: extra operand `-a'

Try `uname --help' for more information.


uname --help

Usage: uname [OPTION]...

Print certain system information.  With no OPTION, same as -s.


  -a, --all                print all information, in the following

                             except omit -p and -i if unknown:

  -s, --kernel-name        print the kernel name

  -n, --nodename           print the network node hostname

  -r, --kernel-release     print the kernel release

  -v, --kernel-version     print the kernel version

  -m, --machine            print the machine hardware name

  -p, --processor          print the processor type or "unknown"

  -i, --hardware-platform  print the hardware platform or "unknown"

  -o, --operating-system   print the operating system

      --help     display this help and exit

      --version  output version information and exit


Report bugs to <address@hidden>.

Fortunately, --all works fine.
