I knew about this, but thought that the important thing was to have the kernel 
and kernel-devel packages matching.

rpm -qa 'kernel*' --queryformat "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n"|sort

shows a horrible mish-mash!

kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686
kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6.i686
kernel-2.6.19-1.2911.fc6.i686
kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i586
kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6.i586
kernel-devel-2.6.19-1.2911.fc6.i586
kernel-headers-2.6.19-1.2911.fc6.i386

I could have sworn that querying uname had said that I had the i586 kernel 
installed.  OK - so now to clean up, then get the correct kernel-devel and/or 
kernel-headers package.

Thanks for the prompt.  I thought I had dealt with this problem long ago.

Later -

Now I'm really confused.  I removed the kernel-devel-2.6.19-1.2911.fc6.i586, 
but when I tried to remove the kernel-headers-2.6.19-1.2911.fc6.i386 I was 
told that 149 packages would be removed, so that's not possible.

I then tried to get kernel-devel-2.6.19-1.2911.fc6.i686, but yum search 
couldn't find it.  Running 'yum update' simply puts the .i586 package back.  
I tried the various commands from 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/FC6Common but none of them worked.

I'm stuck.
