How can I get a list of all installed 32 Bit packages on a Gentoo Linux system?


The eix tool comes to help:

eix -I --installed-with-use abi_x86_32
  • -I selects only installed packages
  • --installed-with-use selects packages with certain USE flag

In this particular case you could even omit -I, but I included it just as useful option in general. You may also be interested in the option -U, which selects packages which have abi_x86_32, but not necessary were installed with it, and in combination with -I it gives yet another list.

If you don't have eix on the system yet, just install it with emerge app-portage/eix.
