Swaret Problem

Hi all.. I just downloaded swaret tonight and have finished the config file. I have never used this before so I thought I would give it a try. Everytime I run swaret I get this error:

bash-2.05b# swaret --update
swaret 1.6.2-1

sed: -e expression #1, char 11: Unterminated `s' command

Being new to this program I have no idea what that means. I googled for that error and no website had then answer. could someone help me?

Thank you for your time

I don't know the mistake that you made, but you should have copied /etc/ to /etc/swaret.conf and then made just a few changes so that it points to the right version of Slack that you want to get updates for.
