[Xymon] libs: cannot check kernel uptodateness

I saw those messages on my system as well.  I just modified the script to ignore them.  I think they are created when the kernel is compiled to let the user know what was the kernel was compiled with.  There is likely a config-x.y.z-aa-arch for every kernel you have installed.  I'd have to look at it again but it might be easy enough to modify it to use "config-`uname -r`" to have it look for the config of the running kernel.  Regardless, I don't think they're useful to monitor.

Subject: [Xymon] libs: cannot check kernel uptodateness

My last servers installed with Debian wheezy or Ubuntu precise has started to show a yellow alarm at libs with message:

One of /proc/config.gz and /boot/config-3.2.0-4-amd64 was not found, cannot check kernel uptodateness


ls -l /boot/config-3.2.0-4-amd64
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 129065 Jun  9 15:47 /boot/config-3.2.0-4-amd64

A search at Google shows me several xymon monitor with the same yellow alarm active but I can found references about it.

Any comments will be appreciated.
