Seems you don't have the kernel-devel package installed for the kernel
Your build error is for 2.6.18-128, but your kernel-devel is for
-128.1.6. Mostly, your problems should be solved if you run a 'yum
update' and reboot. This will ensure that you've got the updated
kernel (you probably already do, but a yum update will make sure) and
that your kernel matches the kernel-devel package you have installed.
During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
