Thanks Christof,

I've been building my own rpms for i586 and x86_64, using a spec file
that I cobbled together from a couple of older spec files. It builds kmp
kernel modules, but it gets a bit confused and tries to build kernel
modules for non-existent kernels, if the kernel sources aren't set up
