Hi;

Everytime kernel is updated I see something similar to this:

Problem: preload-kmp-desktop-1.2_k3.0.0_rc3_3-66.7.x86_64 requires
kernel-desktop = 3.0.rc3-3, but this requirement cannot be provided
deleted providers: kernel-desktop-3.0.rc3-3.1.x86_64
Solution 1: do not keep
preload-kmp-desktop-1.2_k3.0.0_rc3_3-66.7.x86_64 installed
Solution 2: do not install kernel-desktop-3.0.rc4-2.2.x86_64
Solution 3: break preload-kmp-desktop by ignoring some of its dependencies

Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/3/c] (c):

I think preload-kmp is the system similar to DKMS, is there any work
going to replace kmp with DKMS which I _think_ (maybe naively?) would
create less update problems?

Usually KMPs do not need to be updated alongside with the kernel, and will work
with older ones.

The preload-kmp is an exception, as it is basically just a systemtap hook kmp
and must be rebuild with every kernel.

Ciao, Marcus
