In your /etc/apt/sources.list comment out (add a '#' at the beginning of
the line) any lines that do not point to the planetccrma repository and
do an "apt-get update". You seem to have your sources.list file pointing
also to the freshrpms repository and the alsa packages in both
repositories conflict.
