I realize that you found your problem, but in the future if the question
comes up, try these commands:

     cat /proc/cpuinfo


     cat /proc/version_signature
     uname -sm

In fact I alias the above to a "version" command:

     alias version='echo "`cat /proc/version_signature` `uname -sm`"'

with other variants for different OS's, like Solaris, FreeBSD, UnixWare, etc.
