screwup on my part. it's unnecessary. the non-PAE build is basically
Now there is an i686 kernel available in Rawhide, should doing a yum
update update my i586 kernel to the latest i686 version? yum update
shows that it will update kernel-firmware.noarch to
2.6.31-0.81.rc3.git4.fc12 and kernel-headers.i686 to
0:2.6.31-0.81.rc3.git4.fc12, but it does not update the kernel package.
Indeed, if I try yum install kernel-2.6.31-0.81.rc3.git4.fc12.i686.rpm,
yum reports: kernel-2.6.31-0.81.rc3.git4.fc12.i686.rpm: does not update
