ed is a line editor. You might want to use "vim" instead. It is based on ed but you will be able to see an entire page at a time. Some people prefer "emacs" or other editors, but I don't know what you would have installed. Vim should be installed because, in order to make changes to /etc/sudoers, you need to use "visudo".

Vim is a stateful editor. To get into the edit mode you need to press "i" for insert, "a" for append, or "R" for replace. Pressing "ESC" will return you to the command mode where you can enter ":wq" to save your changes. Remember that you need to su to root before editiing files in /etc.

I use the vi text editor.

vi /etc/swup/swup.conf

Use the arrow keys to move the cursor down to section on the contrib repository and press the delete key to remove the # character for that section. Do not delete the # in the comment section

To save the file enter the characters:
:wq

I've edited the file already, but it gives me an error about a page long. I went in and deleted some of the items right at the begining of the contrib part of the conf file(the code where it changes directories etc)

It fails for me also. I've never had the need to try this before.

Code:
# Official contrib area.
# If you like to use the contrib packages uncomment the section below.
#
# Remember to import the correct gpg key:
#  $ cd /usr/share/tsl-gpgkeys-horizon/
#  $ swup --import-key trustix-horizon-contrib.pub.gpg
#  $ cd -

 site { # TSL 2.1 contrib
 class = 10
  location = "http://tsldev.trustix.org/horizon/contrib/rdfs/latest.rdf"
  regexp = ".*"
}
It seems that I am a little slow to catch on... This is what the section of the config file should look like. The statements that begin with a $ are there to remind you to import the key.

I'm not sure on what else to suggest except maybe post your problem on the Trustix forum.
