Can't install kernel-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5.src.rpm



Hey,

Having a bit of difficulty installing the 2.6.16 srpm for FC5:

# yum list | grep kernel
kernel.i686		2.6.16-1.2122_FC5	installed
kernel-devel.i686	2.6.16-1.2122_FC5	installed
-- snip --

# uname -r
2.6.16-1.2122_FC5

All looks fine, right? Installing the srpm does this:

# rpm -ivvh kernel-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5.src.rpm
D: ============== kernel-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5.src.rpm

A bit confused, RPM was downloaded straight from http:// download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/5/SRPMS/

Can anybody point me in the right direction to trace this error? Am a bit lost - never had an RPM issue like this - nowt in dmesg or /var/ log/messages.

Thanks!

Ben
