Debian mplayer apt-get trouble


Im trying to use apt-get to install mplayer on my Debian Woody box -

So I did some searching about for an apt-source and found numerous references to:-

deb http://marillat.free.fr/ unstable main


so I entered them in (also had stable and testing too)

then did

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get install mplayer

Where upon I get these errors:-

Reading Package Lists...
Building Dependency Tree...
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

AND

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
mplayer-686: Depends: libavcodec1 (>= 1:0.4.8-woody0.0) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libggi2 (>= 1:2.0.1-2) but it is not installable
Depends: liblircclient0 but it is not installable
Depends: liblzo1 but it is not installable
Depends: libmad0 (>= 0.14.2b) but it is not installable
Depends: libsdl1.2debian (> 1.2.3) but it is not installable


Forgive my stupidity here but I thought apt-get resolved dependency problems (guess that sounds lazy im looking for everything to get installed correctly!) ? What is really annoying is that my apt-get
on my RedHat 8 laptop did everything and install ALSA on the fly too ... !


Any ideas ...

apt does resolve depency problems, but that repo you're using isn't an official debian one, so maybe the debs aren't made properly.
I'd advice you to compile mplayer from source on debian.
