Seems to me, yum does not find:


from RPMFusion site, and yet these modules are in
the repository according to this link:


Here is what happens:

# yum install rt2870 kmod-rt2870
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto, refresh-packagekit

Is this ok [y/N]: N

Is yum getting confused with getting the right packages based on the
current kernel version I am running or is there a problem with the
RPMFusion packages?

The problem with the above rt2870 versions, is that it fails to install
rt2870sta.ko: in
which I need in order to get my wireless working again.

Here is what I am running:
