So this has me positively baffled.

In one section you get:

Updating: kernel

which would sound like it found a new kernel.

Updating: kernel, athlon
Found best kernel arch: athlon

Is this an athlon?

Here is where it gets weird.

When we get down to the part where it lists the stuff it's going to do:
[Update: pkgname]

kernel is never listed.
and it should be
it should be listed as [Install: kernel]

kernel-headers is - but not kernel.
and it REALLY should be.

Could you try two things for me - run this output once more - but at -d 10


update to yum 0.9.4 and see if you can recreate the problem.
