Tips & Tricks:
If you’re doing some troubleshooting or perhaps just opened a bug report and need to provide the latest kernel information of your machine, this tip should help you out.

Typing $ uname -a will provide you all the details for your linux version and kernel along with release date.

For Radeon VII users having the latest Mesa is going to be important so we have a command for that as well – $ glxinfo | grep “OpenGL version”
