Yes, that's why livna provides:

kmod-madwifi.x86_64                      0.9.3.3-1.2.6.23.1_10.  
madwifi.x86_64                           0.9.3.3-3.lvn7   

those are supposed to the kernel module and the madwifi package.
Besides, if you try:
yum upgrade -y

You will see that, yum resolves deps for the kernel, these include both
packages listed above, if installed.

I have them installed right now, and kmod-madwifi.x86_64 is not loading.
I suspect the packager made a mistake.

Yeah, that's an alternative; then again, with all due respect, why would
livna make those RPMs if we're just gonna compile? Why use RPMs overall?
