The new kernel installs is unfortunately an apt/yum issue, where when
asking for some kernel-module apt/yum pick one w/o checking what
kernels are installed. You may end up even having apt suggest
installing smp kernels on not smp machines and vice versa.

I suggest to look at "apt-get upgrade"'s output first, which should be
far more well behaved. Installing kernel modules should be done with

apt-get install kernel-module-foo-`uname -r`

ATrpms supports the PlanetCCRMA kernels where ever possible, so most
kernel modules exist for PlanetCCRMA (some that require patching the
kernel don't).

=46rom the list you posted the only really alarming note was:

I cannot understand what wants to remove (only) this package. I
understand that this package is a meta-package pulling in other
packages, so it would be removed, if one of the dependent packages
would be removed, but no package other than planetccrma-core was
suggested to be removed.

If you could provide more details, I'd like to get this fixed - unless
it is an apt or rpm ghost issue, we have seen such in recent times :(
