    Malformed line in /etc/apt/sources.list ?

    I'm trying to get the latest version of remastersys

    At http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/ubuntu.html the author says to add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list
    Synaptic, on load, reports an error:
    E: Malformed line 56 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist 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.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    generates the same error.

    Line 56 is

    Is this line malformed? I don't see how.

    In the link you posted the instructions actually say that the line should be this:

    Code:
    deb http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/repository  karmic/
    (Note the slash in the end...)
