i installed and removed a couple versions of mplayer (trying to find one that will work), now when i try to install one it says :

dealing with package /root/documents/mplayer_20030614-10_armv4l-strongarm.ipk
ERROR: package mplayer(parent mplayer) is not available from any configured src.
installing mplayer (0.90rc4) to root
failed to download mplayer

where 0.90rc4 is one i installed and removed before but not the one i am trying to install.
what i have done so far is to try yet another mplayer ipk and recieved the same results. and searched my files for any left overs from a previous install (find / -name *mpl* -print) and deleted them but still no change.
this is on a 5500 with oz 3.3.5

what am i doing wrong?

ok, I got it. There was an entry in /usr/lib/ipkg/info/status for mplayer, once i deleted the entry it installed no problem.
