As far as I know I never require i686 packages. When executing
dnf repoquery --installed *.i686 though I get a list of packages that I never requested. I also noticed both gtk2 and gtk3 have i686 packages installed. My questions are:
- Is there a reason that Fedora requires these i686 packages even if I didn’t ask for them?
- Is this related to being able to run 32 bits programs under 64 bits?
- Can I remove these packages without risk of systemdamage?
I also ran the
--whatdepends option of above command, but the only package that keeps returning is gtk2 and gtk3.
Can anyone point me in the direction so I can understand this?
