Try uname -a or arch or cat /proc/cpuinfo

Note that these commands will only tell you the type of CPU you're using; i486,i586, i686 means the kernel was compiled for Intel/AMD. Sparc means it's for a Sun box.

Solaris has a command: "banner" which will tell you the CPU type. memory, Mac Address and Sun Architecture; Sun -4u, Sun-4d, etc. It doesn't exist in Linux as far as I know.

Play Bonny!

Hi,

Solaris has prtconf command, the first line stes the machine type. Linux has dmi_decode which provides information about the machine, and in case vendor provides it the machine type (eg. DELL 2950 or HP DL380).
