OK, fixed the lock problem OK. I think when I did a dist-upgrade, a new
version of apt came in, and renamed my planetccrma.list to
planetccrma.list.rpmsave, I renamed it back and the package was found. Now
I've got unsatisfied dependancies alsaplayer-devel & fox-devel. I did a full
install of FC4 to try to avoid problems with missing packages.
