OK, So I'll just yum install...

Is this ok [y/N]: y

So, I'll rip it out the i586 package again by the roots once it's
installed, but I did this once before. Now it's BAAAAACK.

I'm in Little Richard mode again, "Won't somebody HEP ME!?" :) Ric

What is the architecture of the corresponding kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 package? Check the architecture with rpm with the queryformat option. (Sorry, not sitting at a Fedora machine just now to check the exact format you need. Something like 'rpm -q --queryformat "%{ARCH}\n" kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6'.)

The kernel-devel and kernel package architectures have to match. I think yum is doing what it thinks is the right thing based on what you have installed.

So boot to another installed kernel, remove the kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 and kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 packages, and reinstall them.
