Whenever there is a package with 32-bit and 64-bit versions, I'm able to use sudo dnf install [package].1686 to specify the 32-bit version (usually for installing graphics libraries). I'd like to be able to use pkcon to do the same thing, but pkcon install [package].i686 reports that no matching packages exist if [package] also has a 64-bit (x86_64) version. (EDIT: Actually, this happens regardless of whether 64-bit packages exist or not.)

Is there a way to specify the package architecture when installing packages with pkcon? Strangely, searching for & uninstalling i686 packages works just fine; only installing them has this issue.
