Python | os.uname () method

Python Methods and Functions

The os.uname () method in Python is used to retrieve information about the current operating system. This method returns information such as the name, version and version of the current operating system, the computer name on the network, and the hardware ID as attributes of a tuple-like object.

Syntax: os.uname()

Parameters: Not required

Return Type: This method returns a tuple-like object which has five attributes:

  • sysname – operating system name
  • nodename – name of machine on network (implementation-defined)
  • release – operating system release
  • version – operating system version
  • machine – hardware identifier

Example #1

def main():
    arguments = docopt(__doc__)

    logger.setLevel(logging.WARNING)

    if arguments['--debug']:
        logger.setLevel(logging.DEBUG)
        logging.getLogger('ciftify').setLevel(logging.DEBUG)

    ## set up the top of the log
    logger.info('{}{}'.format(ciftify.utils.ciftify_logo(),
        ciftify.utils.section_header('Starting ciftify_atlas_report')))

    ciftify.utils.log_arguments(arguments)

    with ciftify.utils.TempDir() as tmpdir:
        logger.info('Creating tempdir:{} on host:{}'.format(tmpdir,
                    os.uname()[1]))
        ret = run_ciftify_dlabel_report(arguments, tmpdir) 

Example #2

def _syscmd_uname(option,default=''):

    """ Interface to the system's uname command.
    """
    if sys.platform in ('dos','win32','win16','os2'):
        # XXX Others too ?
        return default
    try:
        f = os.popen('uname %s 2> %s' % (option, DEV_NULL))
    except (AttributeError,os.error):
        return default
    output = f.read().strip()
    rc = f.close()
    if not output or rc:
        return default
    else:
        return output 

Example #3

def _mac_ver_xml():
    fn = '/System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist'
    if not os.path.exists(fn):
        return None

    try:
        import plistlib
    except ImportError:
        return None

    pl = plistlib.readPlist(fn)
    release = pl['ProductVersion']
    versioninfo=('', '', '')
    machine = os.uname().machine
    if machine in ('ppc', 'Power Macintosh'):
        # for compatibility with the gestalt based code
        machine = 'PowerPC'

    return release,versioninfo,machine
