Anyone know what this means?



It means you should look at the release notes...

"Fedora Core 4 does not include the kernel-source package provided by
older versions. Instead, configured sources are available as described
in Section 6.2.2.2, ___Kernel Flavors___. Users that require access to
Fedora Core original kernel sources can find them in the
kernel .src.rpm package. To create an exploded source tree from this
file, perform the following steps:"

From the very next Section (6.2.2.3) of the Release notes:

  1.

     Obtain the kernel-/<version>/.src.rpm file from one of the
     following sources:

         *

           The SRPMS directory on the appropriate /SRPMS/ CD iso image.

         *

           The FTP site where you got the kernel package.

         *

           By running the following command:

*up2date /--get-source/ kernel*


I'm just noting that the latter method doesn't seem to work for me, and results in cryptic error messages in the up2date log.
Could this have something to do with the unsigned (GPG) files that up2date finds when updating files that are already installed?
