Summary0003644: Kali ISO build and Netinstall image fail due to upgrade to kernel 4.7.5
DescriptionKali was just updated to version 4.7.5, which is breaking ISO builds using live-build and system builds using the netboot image are now no longer able to build due to a kernel mismatch.

This issue began at the time of this commit
Steps To ReproduceDownload a netinstall iso, or use live build to build an iso.

Attempt to build system using iso.

System will fail to download the kernel and prompt saying that there is a kernel mismatch and ask if the user wants to continue, doing so will prompt with additional errors.

I just sent debian-installer 20160704+kali1 which should generate fixed netboot images.

However, I tested the ISO build (in kali-dev) before uploading the new kernel. So can you share with us the failure that you get?
