I'm having trouble installing packages on my desktop (running Ubuntu 8.04). Everything is fine until the Y-sound-server is needed, and then the install aborts. It's like this thing is the kiss of death! I'm still new to this, I know that there must be a config file somewhere, but I don't know what it should be in it if I found it.
This is the message from the last (crashed) install.
