| hi all

| install a mplayer-xxx in aptitude?
Mozilla-mplayer depends upon either mplayer-386 or mplayer-custom.
Ever thought about creating your own mplayer-custom debian
package? You should try.
The documentation for Debian's build procedures, tools, etc can
be found here:
Especially the Debian Policy Manual. I know this is huge.
I am not through it yet, either.
Maybe this helps, too: http://www.princessleia.com/MPlayer.html
