If you were using apt before then it is probably a conflict with
something you already have installed in your machine. See which version
of alsa you have:
  rpm -q -a | grep ^alsa
You will probably find other version of alsa that conflicts with the
Planet CCRMA packages. 

Or try to find out why alsa-tools won't install by trying to install it
  apt-get install alsa-tools
