SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12
Whereas looking at the actual installed RPM information it shows:
kernel-default-: This is the package name. For kernel packages "default" (after dash in name) is the kernel flavor.
4.4.114-: This is the kernel version.
92.64: Package release.
.1: The build counter.
.x86_64: The kernel architecture.
The build counter is not reported in "uname -r" because it is for build service bookkeeping and does not denote a change in the kernel package.
