Are you using just the Planet CCRMA cdrom? Most probably you did not do
a full install of RedHat and if you are not using the internet or have
the full set of Planet CCRMA cdroms (including the tweaked three RedHat
install cdroms) then apt has no way of knowing about the _original_
RedHat 8.0 packages. You should manually install "arts-1.0.3-1", that is
the package that solves that particular dependency... You can do that
with the RedHat tool, go to the main menu -> System Settings -> Packages
and select arts (it is inside "kde"... I guess you did not install kde
