I am almost positive that its 32 bit.
In the Linux world, i386 anywhere in the name usually denotes 32-bit, while x64 or x86_64 is usually used to denote 64-bit.

Sounds like yours is 32-bit, but is the program you're trying to install 32-bit?

Indeed. Were you using the package manager when you got this error? If so, there is a problem, if you downloaded a package and installed it then the PEBKAC.

Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair

As to your problem... I really don't get that. What packages don't work?

Yeah, the problem does exist between the keyboard and chair, but that is why I am here.

Pretty much all the packages aren't working for me. It might be because of something I did when I was installing Ubuntu. I wasn't paying much attention to it during the install.

I will mess with it some more later. I think I am going to ship it off to Sony today.

Why? you didn't make/have recovery disks to set it back to XP or do you think the unit is defective? A lot of companies (from my experience in retail) will not service a unit that has another os other then the one that came with it.

Sounds like a PEBKAC issue. I would check the connection between the keyboard and the chair. Sometimes that connection gets loose and has problems.

What's wrong with the laptop? I think if you send it in with Ubuntu on it, they're going to say you tampered with it and consider your warranty void.

Did you somehow put the 64-bit repository in your package manager settings?

I am not as stupid as to not know how to reinstall XP on my laptop. I actually got rid of the entire recovery partition and have the discs I made somewhere, but I never use them.

The laptop is physically broken.

Same for the both of you, I plan on reformatting to a clean install of XP so they can get in, do what they want, and get out. I don't plan on sending any of my personal files at all.
