openvswitch, errors getting it installed on 3.4.68-9.el6.centos.alt.x86_64


Wanting to get cloudstack up and running on CentOS6.4 but ran into a problem installing vswitch. So started from scratch with new, clean VM to get this bit sorted.

Rpm's for vswitch compile OK and I've put all the steps at the bottom.
I'm running
yum localinstall /home/ovswitch/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/kmod-openvswitch-1.11.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm

and the errors go something like
Error: Package: kmod-openvswitch-1.11.0-1.el6.x86_64 (/kmod-openvswitch-1.11.0-1.el6.x86_64)
Requires: kernel(nla_find) = 0xcd279169

Available: kernel-debug-2.6.32-358.23.2.el6.x86_64 (server)
kernel(kmem_cache_destroy) = 0x546abb07
Installed: kernel-3.4.68-9.el6.centos.alt.x86_64 (@server)

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Steps from DVD install/first login

yum update
yum clean all
yum install wget openssl-devel rpm-build gcc make redhat-rpm-config kernel-devel*
useradd ovswitch
login ovswitch
(create and exec below)
tar xvfz openvswitch-1.11.0.tar.gz
cd openvswitch-1.11.0
mkdir -p /home/ovswitch/rpmbuild/SOURCES
cp ../openvswitch-1.11.0.tar.gz /home/ovswitch/rpmbuild/SOURCES/
cp rhel/openvswitch-kmod.files /home/ovswitch/rpmbuild/SOURCES/
rpmbuild -bb rhel/openvswitch.spec
rpmbuild -bb rhel/openvswitch-kmod-rhel6.spec

Any clues to fixing this will be much appreciated.
