To find out the architecture of a Linux system, you can use the arch or uname command.

  1. Using the arch command:
1
arch


This command will return the architecture of the Linux system, such as x86_64 for a 64-bit system or i686 for a 32-bit system.

  1. Using the uname command:
1
uname -m


This command will display the machine hardware name, which indicates the architecture. Common values include x86_64 for 64-bit systems, i686 for 32-bit systems, and armv7l for ARM-based systems.


Additionally, you can also use the file command on certain executable files to determine the architecture:

1
file /bin/bash


This command will display information about the file, including the architecture for which it is compiled. Replace /bin/bash with the path to any other executable file if needed.


These commands will provide you with the architecture information about your Linux system.

Alternatively, you can also use the lscpu command to find out the architecture of your Linux system. This command provides detailed information about the CPU architecture. Simply type lscpu in the terminal and hit enter.

lscpu


The output will include information such as the CPU architecture, model name, CPU(s) vendor, and other details. This can help you identify the architecture of your Linux system more comprehensively.
