    This is bugging me so much! Any help please?

    Where is the problem? I did it round about 24 hours ago (Ubuntu 9.10 AMD64) using the description Palm posted on the SDK download location.
    All you need is there!

    I used Virtual Box 3.1.x which is officially not supported. There is a general network problem but beside that it works perfectly. I just updated the package (2010-03-19) to fix two issues.
    I added the Virtual Box 3.1.x support myself as you can read here:

    I used the directions on the palm site, they did not work. I installed the i83-libs and what not, but when i go to install the .deb package, it tells me its the wrong architecture.

    Check the instructions again, paying special attention to the 64 bit part.

    sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture palm-novacom_1.0.51_i386.deb

    LOL...I think I know the problem...

    You should first download the files using your webbrowser.
    Just click on the big buttons unter the headline "5. Install the Palm webOS SDK for Linux".
    Then open a command line window, go to the directory where the files are and then call the install commands.

    The --force-architecture is required to suppress the "wrong architecture" error you're seeing. If that's throwing the error you mentioned then try a few things:
    1. From a terminal type "ls -l" before executing the "sudo dpkg -i..." command make sure the file you want is in your directory.
    2. Once you've verified the file's there, execute "chmod a+r palm-sdk_1.4.0-svn263907-sdk1428-pho420_i386.deb" or whatever the file name is. Then try running the install command again.

    You should at the very least get a different error message after following these steps (assuming that none of the above steps failed)...

    Sorry, but when I saw "cannot access archive: No such file or directory" error message in the post this pretty much looked like you didn't download the file or you are in the wrong directory.
    I did install it last week on Ubuntu v9.10 (AMD64) and the instructions did work for me.
