Hmmm. That's unfortunate. The problem is that there are a number of  
different mechanisms for satisfying the kernel module dependency -  
openafs-kernel-source is one, the dkms module is another, and the kmod  
RPM (which is what you really want) is the third.

yum install kmod-openafs

should do what you need, if it doesn't

yum install kmod-openafs-1.4.10-1.1.`uname -r`

almost certainly will. If that fails, can you let me know what the  
output from 'uname -r' is, and I'll figure out why we haven't shipped  
modules for that kernel yet.
