So as I understand it my options are:

1.  Boot with an older kernel - probably the latest one from 10.4, if it works with 10.10;
2.  Recompile EMBOSS myself;
3.  Download and install the 11.04 (unreleased) Emboss/Embassy installs;
4.  Wait for 11.04 to come out 

Of all of these the "simplest" (other than just waiting) would probably be to try to boot with an older kernel - I don't want to bring the rest of the EMBOSS system down for an extended time period, perhaps very extended if the compilation/install doesn't go as planned.

Sound about right?
