Been there, done that.  :-)

There are a few small problems with the PCLOS installation, but you may not 
need to work through them. A couple of people are putting together a new 
PCLOS Trinity iso, and discussing their progress on the PCLinuxOS forum. See:

Aside from that, it looks like you have a slash ('/') rather than a space 
between 'x86_64' and 'noarch'. At least I think it should be a space.

To see about the malformed line, check the file in a text editor, and if it 
looks OK check it in a hex editor. I once had a line start with an 
unprintable character that I only found using hexedit.

Lastly, the
actually redirects to a mirror. The redirection seems to not be working. You 
might take a look at the problems I encountered last month (March 2015), and 
the helpful responses that I got on this mailing list. You can read them 
online at
