cat /proc/cpuinfo

See flags.

lm means 64 bits.

The above post is correct. If you just want to see the flags you could use grep flags /proc/cpuinfo and again as stated above look for lm for 64.

If you are trying to find out if os is 64 bit use: uname -a and look for x86_64 for 64 bit and i386/i486/i586/i686 for 32bit
