Just a quick note for those who may need the info,

The planet edge kernels and other stuff can be gotten in pieces from:


If you install a kernel you should install it's matching kernel-devel to be able to compile things like the nvidia drivers.  You should also install the correct kernel-module-alsa package along with the new alsa packages if needed.

So to install the kernel headers to be able to compile the nvidia driver with the 2.6.14-0.10.rrt kernel you could do:

rpm -ivh kernel-devel-2.6.14-0.10.rrt.rhfc4.ccrma.i686.rpm 

There may be some dependencies and it's better to do this all through apt-get if you can.  You can get the extra rpms if you insist on manually installing from http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/mirror/fedora/linux/planetccrma/4/i386/

On the planet's changelog page(http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/software/changelog.html) there are directions for setting up your apt system for the newest kernels.  Be sure to fix up your "/etc/apt/apt.conf" as shown in the planet's changlog:

Allow-Duplicated {

This will allow you to do an apt-get install of the kernel-devel packages without an error.

Beware that the nvidia drivers don't play well with the newest edge kernels if installed on a dual-core machine using the smp kernels etc.  Because jack also has some problems on smp there are new jack rpms in the edge section.  Please refer to the changlog page the get the scoop on setting it all up using apt-get.
