    Packaging Barry for Blackberry broken?

    I'm attempting an install of software for the Blackberry "S"martphone.

    According to the page:

    Where it says:

    To install the latest version of Barry onto Debian Squeeze, add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

    deb squeeze main

    There are multiple versions of Ubuntu available. Replace the word "squeeze" above with one of the following:



    I ran the

    gpg --keyserver --recv-key B6C2250E
    gpg --armor --export B6C2250E > barry.key
    apt-key add barry.key

    and saw no problems:

    mark@Lexington-19:~$ gpg --keyserver --recv-key B6C2250E
    gpg: requesting key B6C2250E from hkp server
    gpg: key B6C2250E: public key "Chris Frey (NetDirect Barry Key) <>" imported
    gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
    gpg: Total number processed: 1
    gpg: imported: 1
    mark@Lexington-19:~$ gpg --armor --export B6C2250E > barry.key
    mark@Lexington-19:~$ apt-key add barry.key
    ERROR: This command can only be used by root.
    mark@Lexington-19:~$ sudo apt-key add barry.key


    On running

    sudo aptitude upate

    sudo aptitude install barry, the terminal said

    W: Failed to fetch Unable to find expected entry 'main/source/Sources' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    I then ran sudo aptitude update and saw there were available upgrades, ran that and saw

    E: Failed to fetch Got a single header line over 360 chars
    E: Unable to correct for unavailable packages

    How can I clean up the mess this has made, download the tarball and compile it, etc. per:

    what direcory is that to go in so that the files/folders/stuff is correctly installed and loaded?
