Ubuntu: how to change kernel name



Question:

How do I change kernel name to any name like Linux 3.13.0-53-generic to any name and version ABC 3.12.0.53 generic So that If i logged out from any site like Face-book it sends me back via email of that recent login from Firefox on OS ABC 3.13.0-53-generic With IP.

How can it be done?


Solution:1

I guess what you are trying to achieve can be done by just changing your web browser's User-Agent. That is how Facebook and other sites know about your OS and it's version.

Addon for Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/user-agent-switcher/

Extension for Chrome/Chromium: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-agent-switcher-for-c/djflhoibgkdhkhhcedjiklpkjnoahfmg/related

Example

Change the following User-Agent

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64 3.13.0-53-generic; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0  

to

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; ABC x86_64 3.13.0-53-generic; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0
