Yum just offered me the 586 version of the latest Suspend2 kernel:
Package Arch Version Repository
kernel-suspend2 i586 2.6.18-1.2868_1.fc6.cubbi_suspend2
atrpms 15 M
kernel-suspend2-devel i586 2.6.18-1.2868_1.fc6.cubbi_suspend2
atrpms 4.6 M
I just rechecked and the "exactarch=1" setting in yum.conf is there. I
have the latest ATrpms config files installed. All installed kernels

I knew I was going to take the wrong train so I left early.
