I wish I had made a copy of the yum transaction. Sorry.
After I ran yum, I checked the atrpms site and the
ieee80211-kmdl-2.6.20-1.2933 and the ipw3945-kmdl-2.6.20-1.2933 were not
available. This am, I ran "yum update" and it returned "No Packages
marked for Update/Obsoletion".
OK, there is a "slight" issue with yum-plugin-kmdl: Due to the nature
of the plugin architecture it only kicks in if the normal yum
procedure finds that there is something else to update as well.
That is if yum w/o any kmdl support thinks that nothing is to be
updated the yum-plugin-kmdl code is never executed.
Since the kmdls are usually issued very soon after the kernel rpm
update most people update the kernel and the kmdls in one sweep with
yum-plugin-kmdl. And you always have somethingto update to almost
every day. So the chances of
o having update to the latest kernel,
o the kmdls not being yet available at that time
o no other update other than the kmdls exist
are very slim, but did hit you. The upcoming kmdl setup will deal w/o
a plugin at all, so this will not be an issue anymore, and for now,
either wait a day until another regular update is queued in, or use
yum install foo-kmdl-`uname -r`
