No new planetccrma.list got created, but as the rpmsave suffix got attached,
I think apt was ignoring it. I did the install of fc4 quite a while ago and
it went perfectly except for the lam thing, and I've done a couple of
dist-upgrades since then.

 Did you save a copy of the new planetccrma.list file that got created?
 I'd be interested in seeing what 'diff' has to say.  Perhaps you should
 have kept the newer version?

 I'm assuming you are saying that you already did a full/fresh FC4 install
 before trying all this other stuff, right?  ... I recently posted a thread
 "from zero to DAW in 2 hours"... which shows exact steps I took, and
 had flawless install/setup.  Have you looked that over?
