That's not an F10 kernel yet, it's currently a test kernel:

Suggestion 1)
Don't use testing kernels and expect anything to work

Suggestion 2)
Don't enable the updates-testing repo unless you really are testing...

Suggestion 3)
Subscribe to the fedora-test-list and ask there:

HTH ;o)

(yeah, I know it's not helpful, but the guys on the Fedora Test list 
will be better placed to help you...)
