Description Ben Konrath 2004-08-13 17:41:49 EDT
Description of problem:
If the user sets the kernel to vmlinuz instead of vmlinux, the plugin
doesn't detect this and issue a warning.

Additional info:
The plugin seems to be able to detect which kernel is running very
well.  The only reason I needed to change the kernel setting is
because I updated my kernel. Perhaps the plugin could autodetect the
kernel version everytime oprofiled is started. The current
configuration option could be grayed out unless explicitly set by the
user. A checkbox could control this. Just an idea though.
