Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Sorry but there's no way to blacklist the packages in multilibpkg. It seems that I forgot to remove the comment you are refering to (in /etc/multilibpkg/multilibpkg.conf) in the latest revision. Indeed, since 1.2.120804, the update mechanism handles as an update any packages of the "64-bit part of the multilib" which is not installed. This is explicitly said in the RELEASE-NOTES.

Includes a full revision of the update mechanism, which now, handles as an update, any package of the "64-bit part of the multilib" which is not installed. This allows users to not have to re-install all of the "64-bit part of the mulitlib" each time a package is added into it.
I am a not-more-than-necessary person, not an everything-and-all one. So the above is not the choice I personally would have made.
In this case you can simply use the latest revision that does not include this feature, that is 1.1.110412. But keep in mind that this revision includes the mirrors only for 13.0 to 13.37 and -current, but not for 14.0.
