Re: x86_64 with duplicate packages

Hi, I have a Compaq Presario with a AMD Trion64 and I noticed that lots
of packages get installed in two distinct versions: one for 64bit and
another for 32bit system.

So I have things like this:

# rpm -qa kdeutils
kdeutils-3.5.6-3.fc7.x86_64
kdeutils-3.5.6-3.fc7.i386

Is it a bad idea to remove the 32bit package?

Try `rpm -e kdeutils-3.5.6-3.fc7.i386 --test` and see what packages depend on it. That should give you a fairly decent idea of whether it is safe or not. My system is also full of i386 packages that I would prefer weren't there, but if yum installed them, there had to be a pretty good reason. I've stopped worrying about it.
