False. Some 32bit libs remain. Some of us don't like to have unclean
systems. I know, it's common for Linux users to install all, leave all
and live with it, (most of the time,) but I, as a system administrator,
am picky about what is on my system, if I install it, and I remove it,
all of it is gone, or I manually remove it.
but there are still some remains so does anybody remember how to
search for packages by architecture?
If a package is "removed" the configuration files are left behind. If
the package is "purged" then along with the normal files the
configuration files are removed too.
