Yes, for Sugar 0.106 and Sugar 0.107.  This was by Martin Abente,
Gonzalo Odiard, and myself, working for OLPC.

The package archive is on http://dev.laptop.org/pub/us

The change was because people made mistake, and thought that i386
was available, but it was not.  Sorry for not making change earlier.

There was no support built for i386 by OLPC.

Older Sugar 0.98 is available for i386 from Ubuntu, but it does not
work very well.

I am not planning support.  OLPC is supporting amd64 only for Ubuntu
and Sugar.  Happy to do i386 for a fee, of course.

Without fee, I'll be happy to review any patches you make.

But it does not work very well.
