     archdetect — detect hardware architecture


     archdetect [-g]


     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

     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
           subarchitecture that may be compatible with this machine.  This is only necessary on
           certain architectures, and simply has no effect elsewhere.


     archdetect was written by the Debian Installer team.
