planetccrma-core is an empty package :-)

It only contains dependencies designed to install what is needed with
the correct versions and architectures. Do an "rpm -q --requires
planetccrma-core" to see what I mean (or an rpm -q -l to see what files
it contains :-)

Aha, good catch. The S7 version of the kernel that's there is using alsa
1.0.7, which is newer than the alsa-* packages that are also there. That
is why apt wants to keep everything at the R9 level. Most probably if
you install R9 with all the alsa stuff (which will keep apt happy), and
then add just the S7 kernel and kernel-module packages all will work. 

I need to add newer versions of the alsa-* packages that are 1.0.7 or
