Package: nagios-plugins-contrib
Version: 21.20170222
Severity: normal

Running this on recent Debian Jessie (with installed linux-image from
Jessie AND Wheezy) results into the following:

# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_running_kernel
WARNING: Running kernel does not match on-disk kernel image: [Linux
version 3.16.0-4-amd64 (debian-kernel at lists.debian.org) (gcc version
4.8.4 (Debian 4.8.4-1) ) #1 SMP Debian 3.16.43-2+deb8u5 (2017-09-19) !=
Linux version 3.2.0-4-amd64 (debian-kernel at lists.debian.org) (gcc
version 4.6.3 (Debian 4.6.3-14) ) #1 SMP Debian 3.2.96-2]

# ls -la /boot/vmlinuz*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3129104 Sep 19 17:11 /boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-4-amd64
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2854496 Dec 10 18:24 /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-4-amd64
# uname -s -r -v
Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.43-2+deb8u5 (2017-09-19)

So it reports that the running 3.16.0-4-amd64 does not match the
recently installed 3.2.0-4-amd64. Indeed this it totally true, but I
guess this is nobody caring, cause in such a situation it would be
expected nobody wants to boot and run the 3.2.0 kernel.

Cheers, Jan.
