[CentOS] Ndiswrapper refuses to install?

Hi everyone! :-)

I have a problem with making a wireless USB dongle work under CentOS 6. The 
dongle is known to not work natively under Linux and last time I used it (cca 
3 years ago) I managed to get it working using ndiswrapper.

This time I was hoping to make it work again in the same way. But the "yum 
install kmod-ndiswrapper" reports the following (among other regular stuff):

Error: Package: kmod-ndiswrapper-1.56-1.el6.elrepo.i686 (elrepo)
           Requires: kernel(per_cpu__kstat) = 0xb3994c7a

And yum refuses to install it. I've never seen this kind of report by yum. 
What's going on here? And more importantly, how do I install kmod-ndiswrapper 
on my up-to-date CentOS 6.2?

Best, :-)
Marko
