Bug Description

The /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory is provided in Ubuntu 6.06 LTS to allow packages and administrators to add new respositories to the system without changing the default /etc/apt/sources.list file.

Since all EasyUbuntu needs to do is enable the Universe and Multiverse repositories (should that option be checked in the installer) a suggested file for use in that directory is as follows (please modify as appropriate, I admit I'm new to this!):

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/easyubntu.list:

# This enables the Universe and Multiverse respositories as
# requested during the use of EasyUbuntu. These
# repositories must be enabled for software installed by
# EasyUbuntu to recieve patches.
#
# The EasyUbuntu homepage is at:
# http://easyubuntu.freecontrib.org/
#
# Please report any bugs on our Launchpad site:

#
# Thank you for using EasyUbuntu!

Yes, this is mentioned in the comments to bug 50639 but is unrelated to that issue.
