During 10.04 install I ran into an error every time I tried to install packages, so I just skipped the step figuring I'd do it later.Boot up, nothing but the cd in /etc/apt/sources.list. Does anyone know where I can find the default sources.list?
I was trying to install Tor and deleted a couple lines out of the sources.list. I think I may have deleted something I wasn't supposed to. When I try to run the Update Manager I get "An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message: 'E:Malformed line 56 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist), E:The list of sources could not be read.'" How can I fix this?
i have a recicled sun fire v240 that i need to use for central loging server, i got an ubuntu 7.10 cd that i got to install succefully in the server. So foar so good, the problem now is that i cant install any software, everytime i run apt-get update the error says:
I guess the old repositories configured in the old 7.10 iso are no longer valid, where can i find a valid one?

There is a problem with my source list (apparently) I'm running 11.04 if that helps.When I try to use apt-get install update for example, I get: "Malformed line 59 in source list etc/apt/sources.list"The same error occurs when trying to access synaptic package manager, it tells me there is a malformed line and the list of sources cannot be read.This error prevents me from apt-getting anything, updating and i suspect it is affecting the software center too.
I am quite new to centos as I am from a windows back ground and trying to change over. I am trying to install Asterisk on a dell quadcore server running centos. I need to install Dahdi for hardware support but when I try to install it I get the following error You do not appear to have the sources for the 2.6.18-164.6.1.el5 kernel installed I don't have a clue
In a typical sources.list in a Debian-based distro, I see a line that begins with "deb," and right below it, the same repo preceded by "deb-src." I can figure out that that means "Debian source," but what's the difference between a "deb" and a "deb-src"?
My current sources.list has almost all the deb-src lines removed; I believe I did that at some point because Synaptic was giving me error messages over there being too many entries in my sources.list, and I must have thought the deb-src lines were redundant. I assume I was wrong, eh? The deb-src lines must be there for a reason. I might not have been certain the error messages were due to having too many sources, either; maybe that was only my guess.
Having a bugger of a time trying to update after adding a ppa.?

I only started using it about two weeks ago now though I've had fun this morning I tried to update with update manager but I got this message: Could not initialize the package information An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

I have installed and uninstalled Ubuntu four times now due to various errors. Right now I am getting error messages anytime I try to use the update or package manager and I get the same message from both:
E: Malformed line 54 in source list/etc/apt/sources.list (URI parse) E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem. E:_cache->open () failed, please report.
I have created a custom debian netinst USB stick. It has the default UK repositories in the sources list, but people in the US also need to use the stick from time-to-time.
Would it be a bad idea to mix US and UK repositories in the sources.list? Would Debian be clever enough to pick up the best repo depending on where the user is using the OS from? Or would I need to be a bit clever and create some sort of script to deal with this. (I am avoiding non-free/experimental software).
I tried using sarge release for debian and I don't know what sources.list to use because in all the generators I can only choose Lenny, Sid, Squeeze or Etch release. What release should I use with Sarge? Or where do I get sources.list especially for it?
In my sources.list all I can see is online addresses but there is another directory in my pc which has all the sofwares but I don't know how to add its address to sources.list. I need to know the format of how to add it.
This error comes from the update manager, but I can not see duplicate entries in the software sources. Is there a program that removes duplicate sources? If not how do I find the duplicate entries.

Just a simple question. I'm new to SUSE SLES 9/yast2. I need to install the php5-mysql package however, yast only has packages for php4-mysql. Can anyone tell me a sources repo that will include the latest packages?
Whenever I run $aptitude update I get this error :-

In my netbook /etc/apt/sources.list contains the cdrom asdeb cdrom:[Ubuntu ....]/hardy main restrictedIf I keep the iso file in /ubuntu and then want it to be refreshed during #/etc/apt/apt-get updatehow must I motify /etc/apt/sources.list
I just installed Debian 6.0 using the large installation image and a KDE environment now I am having issues setting up my sources.list file so that I can get all my updates over the internet. My current sources.list file looks like this:
# # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 _Squeeze_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20110205-18:15]/ squeeze contrib main
I started using Ubuntu about 2 months ago, and having been studying every day since. About 2 days ago, I downloaded a copy of i386 Squeeze, and installed it onto an old extra machine (Dell 2350 tower, 768 MB RAM, 30 GB HD, Ethernet broadband) as a learning project.
During the install, I chose to not specify an online mirror. (I was trying to keep things as simple as possible, and save time while I was at it.) I didn't realize that by not specifying a mirror, the new system wouldn't have any links for finding new software. (In Ubuntu, it was automated and required no input &/or editing from me.) Reading posts at this forum, I learned that I need to edit the sources.list file. This was my first attempt at editing a Linux system script file, and I wasn't able to manage doing that. I chose to open it using gedit, and found I couldn't change its contents. I figured out then, that it was read-only.
i got Debian Lenny 5.0.1 and i'm trying to install the OSCAR cluster.I need to upgrade my OS with the packages in URL...which corresponds to my arch. I'd read while searchin' on web that i need to modify my /etc/sources.list file.
