Where does uname find kernel version? For my last 2 new kernels, uname -a 
returns some off the wall kernel version. It seems to be picking up extra 
info from God know where.

$ uname -a
Linux MRK 2.6.15-gentoo-r12.6.14-r-4_new #1 Fri Jan 27 12:38:49 EST 2006 i686 
AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2400+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

running kernel lines from grub.conf:

title  Gentoo-2.6.15
root   (hd0,0)
kernel /bzImage-2.6.15-r1 root=/dev/hda5

cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.15-gentoo-r12.6.14-r-4_new (root@MRK) (gcc version 3.4.4 
(Gentoo 3.4.4-r1, ssp-3.4.4-1.0, pie-8.7.8)) #1 Fri Jan 27 12:38:49 EST 2006

/lib/modules for the new kernels is affected too:

$ locate r12.6.14-r-4_new

Everything is working just fine, but this is annoying me to no end.
