not to my knowledge.  i changed "stable" to "sid" in
my "sources.list" file.

apt-get install nagios-common

the output is gone.  all i can remember is that 
after the packages were downloaded, maybe 30-40 
programs were removed.  i thought they had been 
upgraded by "nagios-common."

(after going through "apt-get install nagios-com-
mon" again, i see that mplayer now works; but 
other things are borked.)
