Selinux is disabled on this system.

All modules seem to be there and accounted for.

There were no udev errors. Only errors were not able to load ntfs module
and parport module.

Restarting the system gave the the same results several times. There were
no errors when I installed the kernel or kernel-devel. All the modules I
built, build OK except the nvidia module, which gets an error for missing
symbol on depmod.
I booted back to 2045 and removed kernel 2054 and kernel-devel 2054 using
yum. I then installed again using yum. Again no errors and the rpms were
not downloaded again. Yum used the ones from the cache.
When I rebooted the system to 2054, all worked OK??????? The only problem I
have is the nvidia driver failure. I looked everywhere for a clue about
what was wrong, but I did not find anything. It must be some drunken
Leprechaun running around in the system!?!?! Sorry for the false error :-(.
