gOS package repos for Ubuntu Gutsy

Odds are you've heard of gOS somewhere or another. What if you want to test it, but don't want to download it? What if you just want to install it over Ubuntu? You can. Just add these lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb http://packages.googlepc.com/gos/ painful main
deb-src http://packages.googlepc.com/gos/ painful main

Then, run
sudo apt-get update

and to install a full gOS desktop, use
sudo apt-get install greenos-desktop

and you'll be able to run gOS's Enlightenment-based desktop or Ubuntu's default GNOME via the GDM login.
From Ubuntu 7.10,
The DistRogue.

It doespnt work for me. On ubuntu gutsy after added to repos then sudo apt-get update I get:

Failed to fetch http://packages.googlepc.com/gos/dists/painful/main/binary-i386/Packages.zg

Because it's:
deb http://packages.thinkgos.com/gos/ painful main
Not googlepc.com.

I got
Failed to fetch http://packages.thinkgos.com/gos/dists/painful/Release Unable to find expected entry main/binary-amd64/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

How can I fix?
