Not a big issue, but I noticed all of the sudden the "Release" Section in gnome system monitor, has randomly changed from "Release: Fedora 17 (Beefy Miracle)" to "Release 64 bit"

Everything shows as it should be in the etc/os-release file (also shown in screenshot).

Anyone know what might be up with that?

Yup! Mine has that "Release 64-bit" instead of the release name (Good it went away ;))

Thanks, was wondering if it was just something wonky on my system lol

Mine is fine otherwise. I wonder what the real issue is ? Actually, I never would have seen that if not for your post :)


cat /etc/redhat-release
Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle)

It's a copyright issue :lol:

It's strange have you testing-updates enabled?

Guys, lets have some fun and edit: /etc/fedora-release to something like:
My beloved Fedora

Then rebuild grub2, enjoy :)
(btw, glenn i think thats specialy for your needs)

I dont recall what the threads name was,
but it was something like: I'd like to have unique names on GRUB2 screen.

Well, editing /etc/fedora-release will do so :D
Or /etc/arch_release, or /etc/debian_version and so on.

Do this for each linux installation, rebuild grub2, and enjoy the unique names on GRUB2 screen.
Not sure if this has an efffect on the display at the gnome system monitor.

Are you sure? It changed neither for me. GNOME Monitor is 'Release 64-bit' (I did not expect this to change since it did not reflect what was in /etc/fedora-release in the first place). But, grub did not change either! :(


cat /etc/fedora-release
My Operating System - Fedora 17

Weird, it did (was) changed 2 days ago.
Today i did a hdd wipe and fresh install, and didnt apply any more..
EDIT: sorry for the miss-info :(

Maybe because the old grub2 was 1.99 and F17 one's 2.04 beta or something.

Same here. I am not quite sure where the system monitor is getting "release 64 bit" from.
