Kernel Updated/Installed, checking for bootloader

ImportError: No module named checkbootloader
Not sure if this is a broken script problem, but when I remove a kernel,
I'm still finding directories in /lib/modules for the kernel versions
Is this normal and if it is, why are they still there?

For some reason best known to my computer, /var/cache/yum/development/packages is completely empty, so I'm left with a machine which can't be connected to the net for fixes.
I've seen a few suggestions for getting things to work by using module-init-tools-3.0-2. Unfortunately, I don't have this RPM.
Can someone please make it available (upload it somewhere)?
I've googled around to see if I can find the package anywhere, but nothing is around.
(using Lynx from his laptop, connected to his son's machine as neat seems to be broken in the current set of releases as well)

With the last set of updates, I saw a lot of segfaults from modprobe, so I
backed out module-init-tools:
rpm -Uvh --oldpackage module-init-tools-3.0-2.i386.rpm
Everything else seems to be running okay so far:
libgal-2.2.so.0, libsoup-2.2.so.6, libgal-a11y-2.2.so.0 are missing, so
ev and ev-data-server can't be updated. Is this a rebuild problem or
have they just not hit rawhide yet?

Has anyone tried setting this up, from what I read it uses the PrizmII
chipset, but when I choose that in the Network config, it does not see it.
USB seems to be working fine.

I've just updated my FC3-T1 and now in X the screen/apps do not get
refreshed unless I mouse over the area. I tried different resolutions,
but the problem is still there.
For now I changed the driver in xorg.confg from "i810" to "vesa" and
everything works great even if it's at 800x600 :-(

Should I bugzilla this ?
This update reworks the network device detection in kudzu, fixing various
reported bugs, among them #108178, #111639, #112837, #120584, #120988,
#122983, and #124765.
If no new regressions are posted, this will be pushed live by Tuesday,

This update can also be installed with the Update Agent; you can
launch the Update Agent with the 'up2date' command. You may
need to edit your up2date channels configuration. Within
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources enable the following line:
yum updates-testing http://fedora.redhat.com/updates/testing/fedora-core-2
Yesterday evening/early today I ran up2date to pickup
the latest updates to FC3 Test 1 and noticed that it
prompted me to update up2date before doing any further
updates which I did but found that I was then being
offered FC2 updates.
The solution is to uninstall up2date components and
the RHN component mentioned as a dependancy and then
download and re-install the 3 original components from
OS repository for your architecture from the FC3 Test
1 (2.90) archive on download.fedora.redhat.com.
Hope this helps if anyone else falls fowl of the above
before it gets fixed (soon I hope)
I've had a strange problem when trying to compile a C++ program.
On FC2, when using the standard C++ compiler (gcc 3.3.3), the first line
of the program (#include <iostream>) caused a raft of errors regarding the
file cmath. I was then pointed to try gcc 2.96, but this didn't work for
However, on FC1 (with gcc3.3.1), the program compiled cleanly (and ran on
