Yuck, I hate computers :-)

So... we need to get rid of it, I think. We could always install the
"previous kernel" through rpm so that you would not have to erase it,
probably not worth it as it is not working anyway.

Let me see, I think this will get rid of the kernel and associated alsa 
drivers (and leave the system without needed parts for a moment - that's 
why I'm using the --nodeps flag, come to think of it you probably have 
not yet installed anything that needs alsa so you may be able to do 
without --nodeps which would be better):

rpm -e --nodeps kernel-up-2.4.19-2.ll.acpi alsa-driver-2.4.19-2.ll.acpi 
alsa-lib alsa-utils alsa-tools

After that you should be able to do a:

apt-get -f install kernel-up#2.4.19-1.ll alsa-driver-2.4.19-1.ll 
alsa-driver alsa-utils alsa-tools

(using the -f flag if you used --nodeps to erase the other rpms)
