Using the .run script as on 32bit Ubuntu 12.04.

On first run, Opa correctly adds the nodejs PPA and attempts to both the nodejs and npm packages. Nodejs now includes npm, so the attempt to install npm uses the version from the ubuntu default repositories. This conflicts with the new nodejs package.

Attached pull request removes npm package installation. I'm afraid I don't know whether Opa will actually run against v0.10.0; if not, an alternative ppa will need to be set up.

Description-en: Node.js event-based server-side javascript engine
 Node.js is similar in design to and influenced by systems like
 Ruby's Event Machine or Python's Twisted.
 It takes the event model a bit further - it presents the event
 loop as a language construct instead of as a library.
 Node.js is bundled with several useful libraries to handle server tasks :
 System, Events, Standard I/O, Modules, Timers, Child Processes, POSIX,
 HTTP, Multipart Parsing, TCP, DNS, Assert, Path, URL, Query Strings.
