It would be good to know what did change in that last apt-get.  If 
you're not sure, you could do:

rpm -qa --last | more

to get a list of the most recent changes.  That would be a good place to 
start looking for problems.  I'm on the same kernel with no problems. 
I'm up to date as far as FC4 and extras are concerned but the last ccrma 
  update on my system appears to be from Oct 31.

The ccrma repo does appear to be down at the moment.
