Hi, I installed mplayer the Debian (unstable) way from 
but now wish to compile from source. The problem is how to remove the old
before installing the new. I can't find the names of the packages on the 
or Marillat sites and its so long ago ago I can't remember them.

> Tux:~# dpkg -P mplayer
> dpkg - warning: ignoring request to remove mplayer which isn't installed.

... is strange as I often use it.

Any ideas ?
