Wondering if that was the problem, I did a fresh installation on my

I now have i686 for both the kernel and the kernel-devel, but still
i386 for the headers.
I can't find any i686 headers to install, but I thought that they were
part of the devel package? If so, surely they should be i686?
That's normal. I'm not sure if the kernel-headers package contains *any*
CPU instructions -- they certainly don't need a particular processor to
work, so are considered i386.
I have worked through your suggestions again, but still nothing.
is no /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/build directory.
It shouldn't be a directory, it should be a symbolic link ("symlink"),
pointing somewhere like /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-i386/ -- use
ls -l /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/
to check. It may be a "dangling symlink" -- that directory may not
If so, try running
yum install /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-i386
which should find and install the correct package
Hope this helps,
