sources don't have arch, can be compiled for any arch. (Maybe i
misunderstood what your problem was, my english is not that good
yet).You need kernel-source 2.6.10

Kernel headers do have an arch tag because they are binary kernel
specific (for each binary kernel you should have a kernel-headers
package, and you should look for kernel-headers-2.6.10-XX not
2.6.8-10, beacuse those are for kernel 2.6.8 only (package version
