Hi folks,
 I woke up this morning to a nice cron error b/c yum was trying to do a
duplicate install of the same kernel.

if I have these kernels installed:


then yum would keep trying to install kernel-2.4.18-4.i686 b/c it was
available and it was an upgrade.

so I've added an if statement so that after it checks the version of the
pkgname + arch to get the latest one, it also checks the version of just
pkg. That way if we've already got a 2.4.18-4 - we don't need another
one (nor can we have one)

so I think thats fixed.

if I broke anything for anyone let me know.

its available on the website:
