   This tells me that you have the i586 kernel installed. Do "rpm -q
kernel" and
   see if this is not the case. (By the way this is a known bug in
the FC6 installer.)

   You need is to download the i686 kernel, perform a "rpm -ivh
    and reboot with the new kernel.

It looks to me like the one I want is

kernel-devel.i686  2.6.18-1.2869.fc6  updates

When I run 'yum install kernel-devel.i686', the only choice I get is

kernel-devel  i686  2.6.18-1.2798.fc6  core

How do I tell yum that I want the 2869 build version from the updates
repo? I tried several things, but couldn't seem to find the right
