Bug Description

Hello.

I think there is a big problem with the 32-bit REFIND package and the UBUNTU company that decided not to make 32-bit EFI versions anymore.
Now it's more serious because it no longer manufactures a 32-bit version for ARTFUL.

The contents of the 32-bit version of refind is available here:
wget http://ppa.launchpad.net/rodsmith/refind/ubuntu/dists/artful/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz

So it is Filename: pool/main/r/refind/refind_0.11.2-0ppa1_i386.deb

This package needs two libraries to work

" refind:i386 : Dépend: openssl:i386
               Dépend: parted:i386 "

Since the I386 software no longer exists, both paquest should be replaced with their 64-bit equivalent because the 64-bit bucket is certainly capable of running 32-bit applications.

I think these two packages are called openssl:amd64 and parted:amd64

I know it's not logical but it will be convenient for those who bought tablets with a 32-bit efi bios equipped with windows and want to delete it.

My suggestion is to say that there is a 3rd package that contains installable 32-bit refind using a 64-bit application.

Currently I am trying to write this documentation https://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/refit#installation

Thanks for reading me
