    Help in installing software

    Hi..

    I wanted to install a software simplescalar on Ubuntu Gutsy. In the installation instructions it said -


    Setup environment variables for easy install.
    export HOST=i386-unknown-linux
    export IDIR=/home/your-login-name/simplescalar (or your install directory's name)


    How do I find what text I have to insert in place of unknown-linux for my computer?

    Please help..

    I don't think you have to insert anything. All that matters is that the variable has something in it. But, for future reference

    Code:
    man uname
    Brian.
