I was facing the same problem to install LabVIEW 8.5 on my AMD64 Ubuntu 8.04, alien complained about architecture difference.

After a whole night trying different methods I've came to a procedure that works. All you need are the LabVIEW RPM packages, rpm2cpio and cpio utils, here are the step-by-step instructions:

1 - mkdir ~/labview
2 - cd ~/labview
4 - for each of the RPMs run the following command:

rpm2cpio RPM_FILE | cpio -idv

Don't mind to try *.rpm in the above command, I doesn't work Unfortunately it must be file by file or you can automate the process using a script.

The above command complete unpacks the RPM, after all the RPMs are processed there will be an ~/labview/usr/local/ folder containing all LabVIEW's files.

6 - sudo mv usr/local/* /usr/local/

7 - It's already installed! Just create a launcher that points to /usr/local/natinst/LabVIEW-8.5/labview

OBS: If you need to remove LabVIEW just remove the /usr/local/natinst and the 5 libraries added to /usr/local/lib
