   I typed "man dpkg" and it had no manual entry. I think I used apt-get 
to install them. I also have Synaptic installed, but I think I 
installed that after mPlayer (or did Mplayer come with RedHat?)

I'm not quite sure.

Either way, I need to replace Mplayer. Synaptic said that it can remove 
Mplayer, but it will also need to remove a whole lot of dependencies. 
Should I just un-install Mplayer via synaptic and then re-install it 
along with all of its dependencies? I'd rather not do that if I do not 
have to, because the other apps required a LOT of configuration.
