There is yet another option, just install the kernel from PlanetCCRMA
by its name and not planetccrma-core*. ATrpms has support for
PlanetCCRMA's kernel, e.g. every kernel module that can be built for
it (nvidia, alsa, ipw2100, drbd, ...) has been built.

In that case you don't need to disable ATrpms, see above. you only
need to disable ATrpms if you want apt to install planetccrma-core*.

(Although I'd argue that apt should have been pulling in the
explicitly given packages instead of bailing out, apt-get install
package=3D<version> works, why not from the Requires?)

BTW you can also do

apt-get install kernel-version-smp-athlon=3D2.4.26-1.ll.rh90.ccrma \
		alsa-kernel-smp-2.4.26-1.ll.rh90.ccrma-athlon=3D1.0.4-1.cvs.rh90.ccrma \

e.g. the versions given as "not found", and apt will play this time :)

Nothing has changed with ATrpms, neither in pinning, nor in fftw
(other thread). I really wonder, what has caused all this turbulence,
the repos were working so nicely together ... :/
