Well, I started down the dependency chain and rolling back libasound2 is resulting in a deep and dark hole. I think I shall stop while I only have one non-working package. It crossed my mind to try and rebuild the audacity package which, in all my years of using Debian I've never tried before. So I follow the nice tutorial at: https://wiki.debian.org/BuildingTutorial and eventually land on this error: $ sudo apt-get build-dep audacity Reading package lists... Done Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: builddeps:audacity : Depends: libjack-dev Depends: portaudio19-dev (>= 19+svn20101113-3~) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. In aptitude I see that portaudio19-dev is at version 19.6.0-1. Apparently, the tool cannot parse this out as the audacity debian/control file specifies >= 19+svn20101113-3~. Right now the situation appears intractable. My only other option is to reboot into the Slackware partition and try audacity there. In the mean time I hope that the maintainers can correct the issue. - Nate -- "The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist fears this is true."
