Hello,

The latest fedora F-17 has a feature in which entire system can be installed under /usr and other directories like  /sbin will be a symlink to /usr/sbin etc.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/UsrMove

Since the dkms was moved to /usr/sbin   and it has a %post which says if a /sbin/dkms is found move it to dkms.old . The patch corrects the specfile . This patch also adds the kmod package in the Requires field replacing the modutils, which has been replaced by kmod.

The fedora bugzilla for this problem is

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=790521

Thanks,
Sunil
