Sorry, I firstly sent this email to the wrong address (sorry Fernando). 
I recently switched from Ubuntu to Fedora Core 3 + Planet CCRMA. Up to 
now I'm finding it excellent, somehow the performance of my computer 
seems to be much better than with Ubuntu and I'm glad to have an easy 
way to configure an audio and music workstation. But now I'm missing the 
way packages and dependencies were managed in Debian distributions, for 
example: I wanted to build the LinuxSampler and it asked for a package 
named sqlite3. I remember finding it very easily in Ubuntu but I 
struggled a lot to find it for Fedora. Once I found it I tried to 
install using Yum and it printed a very long list of dependencies that 
needed to be upgraded (including jack and other audio softwares 
installed from CCRMA) and it stopped with dependencies error and without 
installing anything. So, my question is how should I install packages 
not available through the CCRMA repositories without this kind of 
problems? How should I install other packages without affecting the 
CCRMA installation?

Thank you in advance!
