OK.  I tried to install xine last night.  I have some rather complex
dependancy problems.  I'm using all ubunuto apt-get servers and then
your apt-get server.  Basically, the packages on your site depend on
versions of software that ubuntu doesn't see to supply.  I'm not there
now, but so far, all the software seems to be listed; the errors says
thinks like:

depends on package_version-1.2.3 but only package_version-1.2.2 is available
E: Dependancy break or error.

Soo. Yes.  I'm guessing there are some other "bleeding edge" software
repositories that I need to enable as well??
