Ubuntu phpmyAdmin Installation

Hello,

I want to install phpMyAdmin on Ubuntu 10.04, so I typed like this:

sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-auth-mysql phpmyadmin

but this error message occured:

E: Malformed line 54 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)

E: The list of sources could not be read.

Can you be enough kind to help me to fix this ? I receive the same error messages when I try to install Java JDK

    Your issue will block you from installing any software using apt-get because your sources.list files is not in the proper format.

    Please post the contents of your sources.list here and we can tell you how to fix it.
  • Did you tried to put hash (#) in front of line 54 then run update?

    Try following steps:
    sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    

    save it, then run:
    sudo apt-get update
    

    This should solve this problem, anyway this is not solution, rather workaround, It will be great if You will be able to paste here output from:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    

    Regards

  • I don't know that much about Ubuntu but i have installed phpMyAdmin on my RedHat using the manual installation and it always works. It's easy you can get full installation instruction from their wiki webpage.

    http://wiki.phpmyadmin.net/pma/Quick_Install

    and directly goto heading of "With setup script" and then start from there.


    Hope this helps
