Problems with installing Calibre, Ubuntu 7.10 Gusty AMD_64 with PRS-500

I have been trying to install Calibre on my desktop under Ubuntu, 7.10 AMD_64 so that I don't have to dual boot into windows as often. Everything works well until I get to the postinstall when I get the following errors.

>Trying to setup udev rules...
* Restarting Hardware abstraction layer hald [ OK ]
/bin/sh: udevadm: not found
Setting up bash completion... failed
Traceback (most recent call last):

Unable to create MAN page for opf-meta
help2man: can't get `--help' info from txt2lrf
... all of these fail with the errors above

Unable to create MAN page for calibredb
WARNING: You need PyQt >= 4.3.1 for the GUI. You have 4.3
You may experience crashes or other strange behavior.


I have seen in another post that the 4.3.1 error is not a showstopper, but the earlier error seems to be so. If i run the prs500 command the computer talks to the reader without difficulty.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have reached the limits of my ability to figure this out.

Thanks,
Devin
