Recently I add a debuginfo repo into my /etc/yum.repos.d/
name=CentOS-$releasever - DebugInfo

then yum update and list shows
kdiff3.i386                                0.9.92-14.el5               epel

I notice that the kernel debuginfo version mismatch with my currenting
running kernel, then I go to the
site http://debuginfo.centos.org/5/i386/  , and there do exist the
following ones :

So, Is it the problem of debuginfo.centos.org/5/repodata or I missed anything?

Thanks and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

FIXME if it is wrong.
