The removal of the one sort of binaries, possibly. It might help to forcibly remove that, but I do have some difficulties here. Maybe there is a bug, something not thought of, in tlmgr, that it refuses to remove to remove one architecture from a system that can execute more than one.

The other aspect, removing PPC/PPC64 components on an intel platform, or vice-versa, should not affect tlmgr. It usually does not check the state or nature of the binaries installed on disk, it just checks the records in its data base.



Isn't vi that text editor with two modes... one that beeps and one that corrupts your file?
