I've tried to adding a number of repos and each time I get the following error:

Sub-process /bin/bzip2 returned an error (2)

I tried Google but didn't find anything useful. Any ideas?

I had a similar issue when trying to cut and paste a repo into the form. What worked for me was to first backspace and delete the pre-populated "http://" and then paste the entire URL into the form.

im sure it has to do with the million jb'ers hitting all the servers...they are all screwy. give it time.
I've read that a number of times and places but I'm not so sure. One of the repos I'm trying to add isn't as popular as some of the biggest and I think only has one app, iSwype. I can see how the gpg error could be due to heavy traffic but the one I'm getting feels more like it's something with Cydia or the jailbreak in general.
