I would like to uninstall playvideodisk, which shows up in dpkg but when I got to unisnall it ( dpkg -P playvideodisk ) I get a message saying it isn't installed.

How can I remove this package ?

The package name is playvideodisk-knoppix.

Will uninstalling it break anything? ( I am uninstalling and rebuilding xine ).

I ask because I found this description:

================================================== ======
Frontend for xine to change DVD-device on-the-fly This is really a missing-feature workaround for xine, since xine currently does not allow you to specify your DVD-Device by commandline option. The package may become obsolete soon, but is needed for the Knoppix xsession autoconfig.

Looks like it is used for the CD auto-detection I don't think you need it for hd install and when you go to remove it only wants to remove the one package.

The following packages will be REMOVED:

Remv playvideodisk-knoppix (0.5-2 )

So removal is up to you it's not going to break xine it's just a work around script like it says in the description.
