ubuntu hardy problem with binary install `Illegal instruction`

I like the sound of calibre. I use ubuntu hardy, from the forums it sounds like the binary install is the way to go.

Below is what happen:

~/Calibre$ sudo python -c "import urllib2; exec urllib2.urlopen('http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/download_linux_binary_installer').read(); main()"

Enter the installation directory for calibre (Its contents will be deleted!)[/opt/calibre]:

Downloading calibre...
...
Extracting application files...
Illegal instruction


OK I am on dailup so don´t usually bother with updates, but figured it might help here. So I applied all updates to packages `python*` & `linux*`. And try calibre again (not the download, just the command)


~/Calibre$ /opt/calibre/calibre
Illegal instruction


As you can see no change. Any help much appreciated

The next release of ubuntu will have a calibre package in its repositories. I suggest waiting till then. Alternatively, try the instructions for ubuntu and if that doesn't work, try installing from source

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes it probably is easier to wait for it to go into the repositories. I am sure hardy dosn´t meet the dependencies and installing from source is likely to be out of my league
