You can also do a

Code:
# cat /proc/cpuinfo
and that will give you info about your CPU(s).

Cheers,

I think
Code:
uname -m
is more acceptable. It still doesn’t tell you whether you have an x86_64 processor—only that you are running an x86 or x86_64 kernel.

Thumbs up Intel 64 bit architecture

For intel 64 bit architecture that is em64t
One need to check for the pni or lm (may be both) flags in /cat /proc/cpuinfo
