HP Pavilion dv6000, NVIDIA driver issues + others, Ubuntu 9.04 (jaunty jackalope)

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:	Ubuntu
Description:	Ubuntu 9.04
Release:	9.04
Codename:	jaunty
(haven´t fixed the lsb modules yet)

I have a bunch of problems.

First of all, I have started with a mistake (or at least I think so), of which I became aware later on, after reading some posts. So, instead of installing a version for x2, I accidentally used a i386. I don´t know whether this matters that much, but I thought that it´s better to bring it up the first. Should

Second. Just after the installation, I was unable to activate the nvidia driver, even if it appeared in ´hardware drivers´ as installed. Later, after a series of unsuccessful attempts, I´ve managed to kill that menu, and now I´m only getting a never-ending window of ´searching for available drivers´.
I tried envy, with the instruction from this site, but after
, I got
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 403 Forbidden
2009-10-28 11:28:09 ERROR 403: Forbidden.
Is the site unavailable or am I just having some other problems that I cannot understand? I don´t know what else could I do.

Third. My greatest nuisance was
E: Could not get lock /var/cache/apt/archives/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the download directory
. After I´ve tried some advices, it worked with this
sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/lock
, from It seemed so easy. Why does this happen and why couldn´t it be identified in ´processes´ menu?

Forth. I might also have some problems with PulseAudio SS, but I haven´t researched into it yet. I cannot record anything (with the default recorder).

I hope that you could give me a hand or at least direct me towards some good reading.

Thank you in advance,

P.S.: I suppose that if I fix the first problem, everything else might turn out OK. What do you guys think?
