I am using "i386".
The 64studio here, the one I keep at 64studio testing,
is keeping these back.
blender flac gigedit
if I type in a terminal
# dpkg -l | grep "ardour"
ardour = 2.4.1-1~etch1
are you on the same version?
even if I enable 64studio backports, I have no ardour on hold.

Thank you for this info, I am going to google to find out more.
The upgrade to lenny I did this morning (on a testing disk)
was much better when I didn't touch synaptic.
I am going to have to find out about this bug

This is how I keep my sources configured,
I check for update/upgrades, from 64studio.
Then enable etch to see what's available.
I only enable 64studio backports if there is something I need.
$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/64studio.list
# Stable 64 Studio repository

It sounds to me like your bass playing is jumping,
leaps and bounds because you love to play and practice often.
Guitar is my instrument (been playing 40 years)
"did I just type that"?
A good teacher is a real plus. Hand conditioning is at the heart
of good playing. Checkout chromatic scales to strengthen your hands.
Sorry I couldn't help more with ardour,
I mainly wanted to thank you for the apt/synaptic info.
Someone will no doubt be along shortly, to help with ardour/packages.
