Earlier today I needed to use sort to output unique lines from a file to a new file but ran into an issue. I was attempting to use the sort command on a Windows 7 computer with Cygwin installed. Below is information on the initial error I received and then how it was resolved.
I received the below error when attempting to run a setup.py script to finish installing a certain application. The application was being installed on a 64-bit CentOS Linux system and during the initial part of the install I had attempted to use 32-bit python which ended up causing a bunch of errors. After I believed that all of the errors were corrected I still received an i386 error message. Since I am not very familiar with Python setup scripts it took me a couple minutes to figure out what needed to be done.
