This seems to have done something but I still get a problem updating :

Missing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22.1-33.fc7 is needed by package 
alsa-kmdl-2.6.22.1-33.fc7
Missing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22.1-33.fc7 is needed by package 
ivtv-kmdl-2.6.22.1-33.fc7
Missing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22.1-33.fc7 is needed by package 
nvidia-graphics100.14.11-kmdl-2.6.22.1-33.fc7

$ uname -r
2.6.22.1-33.fc7

I somehow don't understand the missing dependency unless yum is still trying 
to remove my running kernel.

Regards,
Marcel
