Long story short, I'd like to verify that Centos actually booted / used the kernel flags/parameters I specified in /etc/grub.conf

Is there a command I can type that will show me details on the kernel that is presently running (INCLUDING the paramaters that are enabled)?

uname -a only shows the versions and hostnames.



  • You should probably edit this question, and remove all of the Centos stuff. I'd do it, but not enough exp. This solved my problem too. – Evan Carroll Jun 14 '10 at 3:22
  • @Evan Done. I still left the CentOS part in the question body but made the tag and topic more generic. – Mike B Jun 28 '10 at 15:31

cat /proc/cmdline
