how to find what version pi you are using

So i was wondering the other day how to show what raberry pi i had, rather than opening it up.

you can install lshw and it can list all your hardware

Install it with


uname -r

which should give you something like this (but probably not exactly this... hopefully)



sudo lshw


Here is what it found on mine:


    description: ARMv7 Processor rev 5 (v7l)
    product: Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Rev 1.1

If you want to see what version of rasbian you are running use the command:


uname -a

uname by its self does not give much useful info...
