By default you don't need the following. Run 'yum info kernel-libre-headers kernel-libre-doc kernel-libre-devel' to see if you might want (i.e. have already been using) one of these and include as necessary.
It seems reasonable to skip headers etc. for now and proceed to the end of this document. If you're kernel works well, add the corresponding headers and the like. If you want to update the headers you will need to run
I expect doc and devel to behave the same, but please try it and add the info here.
3. Update your grub.conf file ¶
Again as root:
Fire up the text editor you use to worship and find /boot/grub/menu.lst
The easiest way to update the file is to copy one of the already existing blocks and change the version information.
title BLAG Linux and GNU (22.214.171.124-libre.45.fc9.i686)
kernel /vmlinuz-126.96.36.199-libre.45.fc9.i686 ro root=UUID=72096aa4-eca1-4084-b5$
title BLAG Libre and GNU (188.8.131.52-libre.78.2.41.fc9.1.i686)
kernel /vmlinuz-184.108.40.206-libre.78.2.41.fc9.1.i686 ro vga=791 root=UUID=72096aa4-eca1-4084-b5$
Save, exit, reboot on the new kernel and post some feedback.
Thanks for your help!

It seems it is solved; because there is no more old kernels linux-libre on fsfla repo.
When we go on noldrin or kimsufi repos it seems there are some files (linux-libre firmware on one or linux-libre-headers on the other) that are not present.
I know we are not on the non-free thread but the absence of old kernels and before a new one make possible to use free b43 firmware forbid people to use there broadcom wifi cards.

I installed it (same version as extraspecialbitter) on my main computer (Desktop) and now I install it on my lenovo ideapad s10. Fine too on ideapad.
I'll try later the x86_64 on my inspiron 1501.

Yesterday I wanted to try new kernel on my inspiron 1501; I installed it with some difficulties but at the end it ran. But I had to uninstall gnome-screensaver because of broken packages. After that it was impossible to reinstall it because of dependencies unmatched. I saw it was because on Noldrin no fedora-scrennsaver-theme no more fedorainfinity-screensaver-theme.
After that all went wrong and now my laptop is on installing debian amd64 because I don't want to spend hours with blag netinstall. The only installation of x86_64.

I reinstall my blag x86_64 and the last freed-ora kernel with no problem.
And all works fine. My problem (see above) came from a bad removing of old kernels;
