Neither "uname -a" nor "ls /etc/*release" gives you the requested
information on Slackware:

davidc_at_mariner:~$ cd /etc
davidc_at_mariner:/etc$ ls *release
/bin/ls: *release: No such file or directory
davidc_at_mariner:/etc$ ls *version
slackware-version
davidc_at_mariner:/etc$ cat slackware-version
Slackware 11.0.0
davidc_at_mariner:/etc$ uname -a
Linux mariner 2.6.17.13 #5 Fri Dec 29 19:31:36 PST 2006 i686 i686 i386
GNU/Linux
davidc_at_mariner:/etc$

This is what I get on CentOS:

[davidc_at_pioneer ~]$ ls /etc/*release
/etc/redhat-release
[davidc_at_pioneer ~]$ cat /etc/*release
CentOS release 4.6 (Final)
[davidc_at_pioneer ~]$ uname -a
Linux pioneer.layoutsynthesis.com 2.6.9-67.0.20.ELsmp #1 SMP Thu Jun 26
08:14:55 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

So which distro tells you its name directly from uname? Just curious...
