Tried this command in slax
uname -o which according to man uname 
       -o, --operating-system
              print the operating system

Slax is based on Slackware Linux, here's the result(s)

root at slax:~# cat /etc/slax-version
Slax 6.0.7
root at slax:~# cat /etc/slackware-version
Slackware 12.1.0
root at slax:~# uname -o

It is GNU/Linux.  Should this be tried with Ubuntu, Suse, Gentoo, ..., etc?
