Well, there’s talk on the yum-devel list about removing the kernel module helper plugins from yum-utils.  This appears to include the plugin I wrote to support the Fedora Kmod standard which is now a bit out dated by the work in RPMFusion.  (Although, I still use it heavily with RHEL 5.)  Things don’t appear decided yet, but Fedora is not a friendly place for kernel modules.  Unfortunately, this seems to apply to standards and code that would make third party kernel modules easier to deal with as well.

In any case I now claim to be upstream for the FedoraKmod yum plugin. The Git repo is below and you can find a Git Web interface link on the right side navigation menu.  I should have a dedicated page up for it soon.

git clone git://linuxczar.net/fedorakmod.git
