Is there a problem with the RPMs on the web site?
With 1.4.7, we have moved to building 'kmod' style kernel modules.
These build multiple different kernel variants (SMP, Xen, PAE, etc)
from a single SRPM, using the standard RedHat mechanism for packaging
kernel modules. When you're using this, you should give it the kernel
version by defining 'kernvers', and the list of variants you want to
build by defining 'kvariants'. When 'kvariants' is undefined, you
will build a standard kernel module.
You can get the old behaviour back by defining 'fedorakmod' to 0
