Hi
how can i get linux distributions name in java ??? i try it by Syatem.getProperty("os.name") but this return only "Linux" !!!
is any way to return like fedora , suse , ... ???
thanks

You can do this by reading the file /proc/version. I contains the kernel version, distro name/version and more information. It should exist in all distributions. I actually only found this out today! :)

EDIT:
It seems like I was wrong, only some of the major distributions add the actual distro information to /proc/version ( i.e. Ubuntu ). So if you compile a custom kernel, I don't think it will show the name of the distro being used...

Another way, ( though again not 100% about all distributions using this ) is to look for /etc/*-release. Where * is the distro name.
