Hi gurus,
I want to programmatically detect the flavour/distribution of linux
that is running- by using a shell script.
ie ., is there a way to know whether the linux is RedHat or Caldera or SuSe etc by checking
some file or similar to that in my shell script ???

(I require this to write an installation program and make it
compatible to all flavours of linux)

Hoping a solution ...

Thanks in advance,
