Which 32-bit packages are not built in 64-bit Ubuntu ?

Asked by [ Admin ]

I recently came across an example of package that is not available in Ubuntu 64-bit: partimage.

How can I get a complete list of all packages that are not built for 64-bit Ubuntu ?

for i in i386 amd64
rm -rf Packages_$i packages_$i
for j in main restricted universe multiverse
wget -O -$j/binary-$i/Packages.bz2 | bzcat |grep 'Package'| awk '{print $2}' >> packages_$i
sort packages_$i | uniq > Packages_$i
echo "Packages in i386 that are not in amd64:"
diff Packages_i386 Packages_amd64 |grep '<' | sort | awk '{print $2}'
