version reports the Kernel version.

This is more advanced than uname -a, see the Examples.
It may additionally contain compiler and buildroot version, and the developer compiling it.
But, since being hardcoded at compile time, it can not know the hostname reported by uname.

Supportdata2 includes version in the Versions section since sd2-09.
In Supportdata-Probes it was never included (up to fw 7.39). AVM uses uname -a instead.

Excerpt from the proc(5) man page:


       This string identifies the kernel version that is
       currently running.  It includes the contents of
       /proc/sys/kernel/ostype, /proc/sys/kernel/osrelease, and
       /proc/sys/kernel/version.  For example:

A ** in the Mod column marks info from Supportdata2 probes, which will always stay incomplete.
A - in the Mod column marks manual research, the Firmware then shows where the Object occurs, not the Relation.

The (main/scrpn/boot/arm/prx/atom) label in the Model column shows which CPU is meant for models with multiple Linux instances.
Note that this list comes from Supportdata2 probes, which can have arbitrary settings and come from different firmware versions.
It doesn't say much if a model is not listed here. It may be a missing supportdata2 file or just a disabled feature.

Help Supportdata2

The data in this article is incomplete since it was manually collected using the Supportdata2 project.

Unlike the Supportdata-Probes which have been collected for years Supportdata2 is brand new and only has a few probes.
If you have access to a shell then please help to extend the Supportdata2 collection to improve this data.

It's easy and it's done in minutes. Please send created data as an Email attachment to the address listed here. Thanks!
