    What is wrong is that you are expecting "lsb_release" to be a part of your Fedora system and it is not.
    I think what you are looking for in Fedora is: cat /etc/fedora-release

    Also try (this works in F8): htmlview /usr/share/doc/HTML/release-notes/en_US/RELEASE-NOTES-en_US.html

    Actually, it is there.
    If not previously installed, do :
    Code:
    # yum install redhat-lsb

    I'm glad someone actually knew about this
    Code:
    ~/> rpm -qpl http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/8/Everything/i386/os/Packages/redhat-lsb-3.1-19.fc8.i386.rpm | grep lsb_release
    /usr/bin/lsb_release
    /usr/share/man/man1/lsb_release.1.gz
    Also, doing:
    Code:
    yum whatprovides */lsb_release
    would have revealed it was available in the repos for Fedora. I should have looked further than just a Google search on "lsb_release" before posting.

    This also works in the current version of most distributions and provides more information:
    • cat /etc/os-release
