Hi Cumhur. I'm just DLing Rezound on my new install of FC4, and its getting 
fftw 2.1.5-2.rhfc4.ccrma, along with Fox, and Soundtouch. I suspect you may 
have been getting updates from more repo's than planetccrma's, and that's why 
you have a later version of fftw. If this is the case, su to root on the CLI, 
and open a text editor, and go to /etc/apt/sources.list (which may be a 
directory. sources.list.d) . Comment out all repo's, apart from 
planetccrma's, putting a # mark at the start of their lines.

As you seem to have installed the later version from somewhere, you need to 
get rid of it. Check in, /var/cache/apt/archives to see if the later version 
is there. If so, su to root on the CLI, and type the following.
rm -f /var/cache/apt/archives/<filename> 
Make sure to replace <filename> with the correct filename. You may also find 
fftw3 file there as well. Make sure you delete the correct one. 

As an alternative you can do,  apt-get clean , which will empty the whole 

Next. on ther CLI as root, open Synaptic. Go to the newer version of fftw and 
remove it, which will uninstall it. close synaptic.

Still on the CLI as root, apt-get update , which will update the headers, only 
using the planetccrma repo. then, apt-get install rezound , and hopefully now 
it will install the needed version of fftw, along with rezound.

See how this goes. Nigel.

BTW. I did post that other guy back offlist, to see if he'd fixed the Rezound 
problem, and got back a yes. It's always nice to post back to the list if 
something worked, which often helps others.
