Morning all,

Could someone confirm the correct method for building kernel modules
for >=11.1 ?

I need to create KMPs for the ASUS eeePC netbooks, for ACPI and other
hardware specifics. Thankfully both the wired and wireless work out of
the box with no hinky messing around - thanks.

Currently I have as my BuildRequires:
kernel-source kernel-syms module-init-tools

Is this correct? At present when I try and build the modules I get the
following error:
Problem: nothing provides kernel(pae:kernel) = ce6227bbdfbd181e needed
by asus_acpi-kmp-pae-0.30_2.6.27.5_2.1-7.1.i586 Solution 1: do not ask
to install a solvable providing asus_acpi-kmp-pae =

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
