I tried getting MidiShare with synaptic and it tried to do the same thing.

So I downloaded the midishare drivers and midishare from the Planet and manually installed both of the i686 drivers(for the caps and LL kernels).  Then I installed midishare(all using RPM from the comand line).

After that synaptic was able to pull in and install everything else.

It seemed that cheesetracker wanted to pull in midishare, which then selected the wrong driver, and then the wrong kernel( I think it was the caps one for me).

I hope that you can fix it in a reasonable way.  Things messing with trying to install a new kernel, or try to install the wrong kernel-drivers could make things hard for anyone following the web site's directions.
