Sorry if I'm hijacking this thread, but I'm having trouble finding a
solution to a source problem myself. I've got kernel-devel rpms
installed for an i586, and a i686 kernel. Now when I try to build a
module for my tv card it says it can't find .config file.

So what I have is a 137.i686 kernel, and a 42.i686 source, plus a
137.i586. When it builds the module it looks for i686 source and fails.

My question is: is there an i686 kernel-devel rpm for f8? I managed to
build this module before, but I'm assuming there was no discrepancy
between kernel and kernel-devel before.

Cheers guys
