How does one go about removing these RPM's from the system?? As the
system will not let me due to other packages which depend on it. I'd
prefer to stick to the old method, else the *.src.rpm's are available.
As I don't wish to wait for new RPM's to become available when new
kernels are released. I'd like to rebuild it when needed.
