Pharo runs cross platform, Mac OS X is certainly no problem since that is what most people are using. 

Now, you are deploying on Ubuntu Linux, which is essentially independent from where you are developing.

I am not sure what went wrong, but did you select a 32-bit Ubuntu variant ? What does 'uname -a' say ? Can you copy/paste the literal error ? 64-bit does also work, but you need to do some extra stuff, for a 1st tutorial I would skip that part.
