Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 234026
yum installs incorrect arch version of kernel kernel-devel packages (i686 vs i586)

Description of problem:
i have an intel ibm thinkpad t41 running fc6. i upgraded my kernel using yum
upgrade kernel, rebooted into it, and did yum install kernel-devel on it. look
at the results:
[duffy@yuna 2.6.20-1.2933.fc6]$ rpm -q kernel kernel-devel
The 2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6.i586 kernel I believe was installed when I first
installed this system; i did not install it myself as far as I can remember and
I do not see it in /var/log/yum.log.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
There's a known bug in the FC6 installer where it will install the i586 kernel
instead of (or in addition to) the i686 one - see bug #211941.
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/FC6Common has more info and a fix.
Does that solve your problem?
