Comment 1 Flóki Pálsson 2009-09-16 20:48:54 UTC
I solved this by removing kernel-2.6.31-12.fc12.x86_64 with yumex and yum update kernel.  Then initramfs was installed and grub.cong updated.
This is related to permission problem, I noticed that in yumex output log.

This has been confirmed by several forum users, they all had trouble upgrading the kernel with yumex, yum and PackageKit don't have any trouble.
