    apt-get Question

    How do I get apt-get to tell me what component it will obtain a particular package from? If I understand it correctly, it currently tells me the distribution (warty) but not the component (main, restricted, or universe). I don't see an option in the man pages that helps.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    # apt-cache show package ?

    For example:

    # apt-cache show mplayer-custom
    Package: mplayer-custom
    Priority: extra
