Have you tried kernel-tuxonice? :)

No, the error is about not finding a kernel, not about not fining the
kmdls. What happens lately is that kernels are deleted on the main
server and packages that depended on the specific kernel have them
broken dependenices.

If that's the real issue then the cure is to install yum's
skip-broken-dependencies plugin, so yum is not that strict about this.

Use the skip-broken-dependencies plugin.
