Fernando, more bad news. Yes, I have come to think that I am unlucky
when it comes to audio in Linux- It will not let me download the
kernel. Perhaps I could try the mirrors? The thing is I have always
had trouble installing CCRMA using the regular setup, and have had to
type in the mirrors in my CCRMA repo file to replace the standard
download site.
