Do you have to use 2.6.21-1.3189? Livna does have the drivers for older kernels, such as 2.6.21-1.3163.

Livna can't rebuild for each development kernel, they would be rebuilding every day because it changes so often. Normally for development we only build for at the test X releases.

I've gotten into the habit of uploading the modules I build for my F7 testing install - If you want to take a look I've got the modules and the archived kernel RPMs here or if you'd like I can show you how to rebuild the a package for your kernel from the SRPM.

I just send you a PM, but the basics are:
Code:
rpmbuild --rebuild name.src.rpm --define 'kvariants ""' --define 'kversion build_against_this_version'
