    Latest version of Firmware Test Tools (fwts) that will boot on 32-bit OS only UEFI?

    Latest as of posting is 23.09.00 is a 64-bit OS live image, so I need a 32-bit OS live image. Thanks.

    Sorry, Ubuntu does not create 32-bit images anymore.

    This is what the OP is talking about

    https://uefi.org/sites/default/files..._0920_2013.pdf

    Does the OP want a 32 bit version of this utility? I do not know? Is he using a machine with a 32bit UEFI? Years ago there were notepad machines that had 64 bit CPUs but 32 bit UEFI. It was very difficult to install Ubuntu on them.

    I do not understand what the OP wants.

    Regards
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    I have an example of one of those machine here: an old MAC Probook, that I have Ubuntu 22.04 on, to help me test and verify my 'system-info' script on that hardware.

    32bit EFI and 64bit CPU. It "is" a pain to install to fresh. I actually have that setup as a multi-boot.

    My question is that if he is asking if he can compile and run it from a 32bit OS? ...or run it on 64bit and test 32bit EFI? That is two very different scenarios.
