Yes. Thats the correct kernel.  I've just checked Fernando's previous post. I 
must say I'm not too impressed with Yumex compared to Synaptic, the GUI for 
Apt.  Synaptic is pretty much tied in with Apt, but Yumex seems to work a bit 
independant of Yum, which probably explains why you were still getting 
problems with it.
