you need to make sure the devel repository is enabled. If you
installed the planetccrma-repo then the files will be there in
/etc/yum.conf.d open the planetccrma-devel.repo and change the
enabled=0 to enabled=1

there may be just one planetccrma.repo, but it will have a
planetccrma-devel section that you need to enable.

that is cool it works... should see a performance increase too!

read through that link I sent before... as we say RTFM :)


it should guide you step by step on how to build packages, including
the kernel stuff.

keep asking questions though, you will get through it!

good luck.
