Yes, from the dpkg --print-architecture --> amd64, the CPU is an Intel i7-3930K, and the Catalyst package is amd-catalyst-13.12-linux-x86.x86_64.run.

Not that I know of.  So I did the following:

# dpkg --print-architecture

# dpkg --print-foreign-architectures
# dpkg --add-architecture i386
# dpkg --print-architecture

# dpkg --print-foreign-architectures

apt-get update

I have looked but can't find what 'dpkg-architecture: not found' means, none the less, how to address it.
