Hi Will :)

This belongs to Debian user, not to LAU. You likely had GNOME2 installed
and perhaps you used synaptic and it was set up to install recommended
packages automatically. However, more information is needed, to explain
why this happened. As others already mentioned, don't upgrade without
reading. Not only read what packages will change, removed or installed,
also read release notes, take a look at the distro's homepage news, or
simply have an ear to the ground what upstream is doing. Apropos
upstream, the policy of Debian and the package management makes it much
more complicated to keep an audio environment stable and up-to-date than
for distros with another policy and another package management. I've got
Ubuntu, Debian and Arch installed. What you want, likely is Arch Linux.
Things can break for Arch Linux too, but not that easy as for Ubuntu and
Debian and the packages for Arch follow upstream, they usually aren't
split to several packages. Arch follows the KISS principle and the user
has to set up everything on his/her own, so the user is aware what is
set up in what way, etc. pp..
