Right, I downloaded the i386 version, then tried to install it like so

sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i unixodbc-dev_2.2.11-21_i386.deb[sudo]
password for nonrootuser:
dpkg: warning: overriding problem because --force enabled:

Looks like it does need the exact version

Nick, where on the unixodbc site can I get the unixodbc-dev package?

Thanks again
