    hi
    when i run
    yum list installed | grep 386
    i get 150 packages, but my system is x64, why cpanel installed those packages??
    every time i run any install or upgrade from cpanel, i see it downloads both 64 and 386, why?

    is it safe to remove them? cause on other server without cpanel i have easily removed them, not sure here with cpanel, will it hiccup?

    id like to remove them for sure and reboot...



    thanks

    You should be able to remove any duplicate packages for i386/i686 that are showing for both x86_64 and i386/i686. Please ensure to put --no-deps when removing a duplicate rpm.

    You could always add an /etc/yum.conf exclusion for non x86_64 packages by putting *i386 and *i686 if you would prefer. Many times, duplicates aren't an issue, but in the case of openssl, it can cause several issues with updates working.
