I just upgraded from CCRMA/FC3 to CCRMA/FC5 (installed from scratch). I 
was disapointed to find out that a bug in the (same version) of ecasound 
(on FC3) with alsa now shows up when running ecasound (FC5) with *both* 
jackd *and* alsa. So I went to remove jack so I could install a 
different version of jack. It wanted to remove a bunch of programs that 
I would have had to install again. So I just built a version of jack 
into the default /usr/local tree. It didn't run correctly because of the 
old version still being around.

Is there a way to just remove jack without taking all these (seemingly) 
unrelated programs (programs like ecasound and stand along programs). I 
know I could just reinstall the programs, but I have the feeling jack 
will get installed when reinstalling one of those.

Better yet, is there unseen versions of jack that I can install from the 
repos? I've read the yum man page and googled and can't find a way to 
figure this out.
