ok!! so if u really want it that way,
alias uname='echo foobar'
to make it spit foobar everytime u call uname. u can add it in ur
.bashrc file or the global bashrc in /etc/bash.bashrc ;-)
but, in place of linux i want another word like venu, how?
The uname utility I guess would inturn call the uname function.
I think the uname function is a syscall, going though the glibc
Code should confirm that.
In the file /usr/include/linux/uts.h
the following can be found.
* Defines for what uname() should return
#define UTS_SYSNAME "Linux"
I feel that changing this entry and recompiling the kernel should work.
I think Gopu is right. Some article is available at
http://www.icewalk.com/Linux/ManPages/uname-2.html about doing this.
