check what 32-bit packages are installed on a 64-bit server

Solution 1:

You can query RPM database for architecture of installed packages. This command will list all installed packages and their architecture:

rpm -qa --queryformat '%{NAME} %{ARCH}\n'

So if you want to find 32-bit packages only you can check the above list for architectures i686, i586, i486 and i386:

rpm -qa --queryformat '%{NAME} %{ARCH}\n' | grep 'i[6543]86' | cut -d' ' -f1

Solution 2:


yum list installed *.i*86

do what you want ? There's more information on this here in the CentOS General faq.
