it seems like redhat dont release any reason for the url that gives 404
and no one knows about that repo in redhat

or no one cares about my questions...

or maybe they are bz with fc6 which neglected fc5 kernel repo....

I think he's just busy with the FC6 kernels. New kernels are coming out almost daily.

some newbie dont know how to fix the problem by removing/rename the kernels.repo and continue updating the other packages

Davej created Kernel 3001 which was a 2.6.18 rc in his repo.
He then took time off because his wife was having a baby.
He then compiled the 3001 into a test version in updates-testing.and removed the davej kerenl.
When he came back he compile final 2.6.18-1 kernel which is now 2.6.18-1.2689.

and that doesn't include FC6 or xen or pae kernels.

DaveJ cares more than most and without him you wouldn't be running FCanything. :)
