Can you send the output of these commands below?

cd Un*
cat include/setup.h | head -n 191 | tail -n 1

exactly, I was just going to ask you to attach include/setup.h ;p.
setup.h is generated from a template by ./Config, so partially from user input... seems like something went wrong there.

Great. Here's a reference (actually not for 4.7-RELEASE, but this should help to find out the problem):

In reality, Unreal shouldn't even be setting that information at compile time imho. For things such as rpm's and whatnot, the system the software is running on may very likely be different than the system the software was compiled on. I think a better solution is to determine this a runtime using the uname() function.

Bump. Still an issue? (syzop/codemastr) comment

I'd be ok with using uname(), provided that we be careful with portability, after all.. this isn't exactly important...

Task: Write a portable uname() (that gives along the same lines of uname -a) alike the one we have for Win32.

Fixed in CVS .2442 (devel branch) (aquanigh 17-Jun-07): - 0001438 reported by Mouse, to use uname() syscall on ircd start instead of (aquanigh 17-Jun-07): uname tool at Config/configure to fill in MYOSNAME. As with the 0003363 patch (aquanigh 17-Jun-07): this will make binary packages a bit more reasonable. As a side effect, the (aquanigh 17-Jun-07): amount of information in /version has been reduced to just the OS name (eg: Linux, (aquanigh 17-Jun-07): FreeBSD, etc) and release (2.6.17, 6.0-RELEASE, etc), which is about the same amount (aquanigh 17-Jun-07): of information given by Win32 IRCds. If for some reason uname() can't get this (aquanigh 17-Jun-07): info, we just config_warn and set MYOSNAME to "POSIX" as this data is only ever (aquanigh 17-Jun-07): used in /version.
