Hi and thanks to Nigel and Fernando for suggestions,

On this machine, I am a user with sudo privileges to install/remove Planet CCRMA packages; our 
sysadmin administrates the machine otherwise (therefore Fernando's suggestion was easier to try 
out). My apt sources list reads:

[cerkut@erase ~]$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/planetccrma.list
# Planet CCRMA RPM Repository for Fedora Core 4
rpm http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/apt fedora/4/i386 core updates
rpm http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/apt fedora/4/i386 extras ## NOTE THE EXTRAS!!!
rpm http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/apt fedora/4/i386 planetccrma
rpm http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/apt fedora/4/i386 planetcore

 > What happens if you try to install this:
 > apt-get install fftw2 fftw

[cerkut@erase ~]$ sudo apt-get install fftw2 fftw
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package fftw2

I tracked down the dependencies with rpm -q --whatrequires: fftw -> fftw-devel-3.1-3.fc4 -> 

then removed octave (temporarily, since I need it)

[cerkut@erase ~]$ sudo apt-get remove fftw fftw-devel octave-devel
The following packages will be REMOVED:
    fftw (3.1-3.fc4)
    fftw-devel (3.1-3.fc4)
    octave (6:2.1.72-3.fc4)
    octave-devel (6:2.1.72-3.fc4)
    octave-forge (2006.01.28-2.fc4)

and installed ams for testing:

[cerkut@erase ~]$ sudo apt-get install ams
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
    clalsadrv (1.0.3-1.rhfc4.ccrma)
    fftw (2.1.5-8)
The following NEW packages will be installed:
    ams (1.8.7-2.rhfc4.ccrma)
    clalsadrv (1.0.3-1.rhfc4.ccrma)
    fftw (2.1.5-8)

fftw (2.1.5-8) comes from Extras repo, but ams installed and worked fine. Briefly checked 
rezound and planetccrma-audiovideoapps: no more dependency issues. Later, I will ask our 
sysadmin to disable extras in my planetccrma.list and try to find an octave version compatible 
with the planet ccrma apps.

Thanks for your time,
