Ah! OK, thanks, I misunderstood the message, so my next question is ,
when I update to this kernel, which one will be used by default? the
normal one or the kernel-debug version?
They are different packages:
$ yum list kernel\*
kernel.i686 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 updates
kernel.i586 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 updates
kernel-PAE-debug.i686 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 updates
kernel-PAE-debug-devel.i686 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 updates
kernel-debug.i686 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 updates
kernel-debug-devel.i686 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 updates
kernel-devel.i686 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 updates
Just install the kernel package - this will be the default update.
