For historical reasons, my x86-64 architecture computers have a large

there a good way to simply tell a package manager that I want everything
involving that architecture deleted?  The best answer I've found on my
own has been to use dpkg and grep to find everything with :i386, and
then construct a huge dpkg --purge command to get rid of them all.
Hoping for something a little simpler...
Try this:

apt-get remove --purge .*:i386
Before you do this dangerous command , please check all your 64bit software and make sure they don't need any i386 package.
Or some of 64bit software will not work if you don't check.
For example , skype ,teamviewer all need i386 packages.
