Checking if you're running the currently installed Debian kernel

Note: this doesn't work across ABI changes, i.e. when 3.2.0-4-amd64 becomes 3.2.0-5-amd64

Find the package version for the most recently installed kernel:

dpkg -l linux-image-$(uname -r) | awk '/^ii/{ print $3 }'

Get the same information from the running kernel:

uname --kernel-version  | awk '{ print $NF }'
