HowTo Find out if Installed Linux is 32 bits or 64 bits

To figure out  whether we have installed Linux is of 32 bits or 64 bits, you can run the following command in a Terminal:
uname -m
The possible outcomes and their meanings are:

    * i686       : Installed 32-bit version.
    * x86_64 : Installed 64-bit version.

Some other outcomes are ppc and ppc64

ppc for power pc
ppc64 for power pc64 like an IBM power 6 server.

Very Simple :

[root@server1 ~]# getconf LONG_BIT
32

[rdhirend@prod-us-db4 ~]$ getconf LONG_BIT
64
