How can I tell from the Linux command line what kind of processor my machine has? E.g. AMD Opteron or Intel Core 2 Duo.
uname -a just tells me it's x86_64 but that isn't enough information.

dmidecode will give you a lot more info than just what processor, thou /proc/cpuinfo provides more info about the processor itself
