There is no replacement for these outdated packages.  Their updates
are useless.

That is, updates of related packages require nonexistent kernel
package version.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2007-04-13 23:34:58 UTC
just remove the packages its complaining about if you aren't using them.
(chances are that you aren't).

FC4 is no longer maintained (and hasn't been for some time now), and will
recieve no further updates.
