It depends on how you did the upgrade.

In fact, I have some FC6 boxes around that had been upgraded across all fedora 
releases since FC1, only by replacing the current 'fedora-release' package 
with the new release one.

In your case, you need to remove the fedora-release-6-4 package, after that 
send a 'yum clean all' and then a 'yum update kernel', then verify that you 
have the new kernel installed and dont' remove the old one for the momment.
