Description of problem:

I've upgraded from FC9 to FC10a (rawhide) on my laptop. It's a toshiba satalite A135-S4656.  When I originally installed FC9, I had troubles getting my wireless card to work.  After a little reading I found that by installed madwifi, this was easily corrected.  After my upgrade however, the wireless became unusable again.  I haven't done a whole lot of research on it yet.  The problem I'm having now is when I run yum update I get the following:

Running rpm_check_debug
ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
kernel-uname-r is needed by (installed) kmod-madwifi-
kernel-uname-r is needed by (installed) kmod-madwifi-
(1, [u'Please report this error in bugzilla'])

I'm assuming I'me getting this error because I had to disable the livna repos.  I've tried enabling the livna-devel repo but still no such luck.

I've tried yum clean all and then retrying but no go.

I have the following for a wireless card:

# lspci | grep -i wire*
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)

Please let me know if I can get you any other additional information to help you resolve this issue.

I have worked around the problem by doing the following:

yum erase madwifi
yum update
yum install madwifi

You got this error because you had two versions of kmod-madwifi installed.  Reference https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=460548 for more info.  I'm closing this ticket as well since it's not a bug.
