NAME archdetect — detect hardware architecture SYNOPSIS archdetect [-g] DESCRIPTION archdetect displays the current machine architecture and subarchitecture. The architecture corresponds to that built into dpkg, and describes the CPU (and possibly kernel) types; the subarchitecture distinguishes machines with different boot arrangements that require special handling. The following option is available: -g When bringing up new subarchitectures, archdetect may not yet have been taught about this specific machine. This option asks that archdetect try to guess a generic subar‐ chitecture that may be compatible with this machine. This is only necessary on cer‐ tain architectures, and simply has no effect elsewhere.Debian January 10, 2011 Debian
