I am trying to install the Cluster RPMS from rpm.karan.org.  But since I
have updated my kernel with yum, I have the wrong kernel for a couple of the

# rpm -i --test cman-kernel-smp-2.6.9-36.0.i686.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        /lib/modules/2.6.9-11.ELsmp is needed by
        kernel-smp = 2.6.9-11.EL is needed by
# uname -a
Linux bnofdnbackup.buc.com 2.6.9-22.0.1.ELsmp #1 SMP Thu Oct 27 13:14:25 CDT
2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I think I can just grab the source RPM and do a rebuild, but having never
attempted that before, I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.
(I have built RPMs from source tarballs, so I know how to setup the build

It looks like I can just do this:

# rpmbuild --rebuild cman-kernel-2.6.9-36.0.src.rpm

Is there anything else I need to do?
