Hi.

I got an interesting Yum problem today. It complains that kernel
2.6.22.4-65.fc7 is needed by kmod-(nvidia|ntfs) for that kernel, even
though that kernel isn't going to be touched by the update:

# yum update

Any ideas, or should i file a bug right away?

I found that the yum-skip-broken was broken, so I did the following: (Only add those modules you have)

sudo yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update yum \
                                                                               yum-allowdowngrade \
                                                                               yum-basearchonly \
                                                                               yum-changelog \
                                                                               yum-downloadonly \
                                                                               yum-fastestmirror \
                                                                               yum-fedorakmod \
                                                                               yum-kernel-module \
                                                                               yum-merge-conf \
                                                                               yum-priorities \
                                                                               yum-protect-packages \
                                                                               yum-protectbase \
                                                                               yum-refresh-updatesd \
                                                                               yum-security \
                                                                               yum-skip-broken \
                                                                               yum-tsflags \
                                                                               yum-updateonboot \
                                                                               yum-updatesd \
                                                                               yum-utils \
                                                                               yumex

Then I did a

 sudo yum --skip-broken update

and it worked.
