Ubuntu – How to disable multiarch support


I don't want to install any i386 package.
Is there any way to disable functionality?

Best Answer

Since 12.10

dpkg --remove-architecture i386

to get rid of multiarch on an amd64 installation. In case you will have message, like:

dpkg: error: cannot remove architecture 'i386' currently in use by the database

you should remove all i386 packages before:

dpkg -l | grep i386
