Remember that yum 2.6.1 is the backend for repoclosure.

In this case, a whatProvides for "kernel-i686 EQ 0:2.6.21-1.3194.fc7PAE-debug"
doesn't find any provider.

When copying these two packages


into a local repository, the problem is not reproducible, and the
same yum query returns the kernel package.

I need to dig deeper.

The kmod-em8300-PAE-debug packages in FE6, have they ever before caused
false positives like here with F7?
