well, i will partially answer my own question, but pose some new ones
which have arisen...

i installed the FC2 planetccrma-core and then upgraded the kernel and
alsa-module to all seems fine so far, but i haven't
really tested much yet.

if i (temporarily) enable planetedge in the sources list and then select
all the alsa stuff for upgrade from planetedge (driver, firmware, lib,
lib-devel, oss, tools, utils -- all 1.0.6a-1.cvs), synaptic tells me it
must remove planetccrma-core (which installed all those at 1.0.5a-1.cvs)
and also bump my kernel back to 1vP9.

my questions are:

does planetccrma-core contain stuff other than THOSE alsa-things, which
i would lose in removing planetccrma-core, or do those in fact
completely replace the core? also, why does the kernel need to be
dropped back to 1vP9? are there incompatibilities between the latest
planetedge kernel and the planetedge alsa-stuff?
