I've perfected my Firefox/Multimedia i386 setup on x86-64.
But I can't remember the full package list I used.
I should have documented this for future use.

Does anyone know how to easily list the arch of packages on a system?
I can't seem to figure out something from "rpm" at the CLI.
Yum perhaps?
