Which GCC Built My Kernel?

I'm playing around with the kqemu accelerator for the QEMU virtualization software. I can't remember which version of gcc I used to build my kernel. I have 3.4.6 and 4.1.1 on this (Gentoo) system. I seem to remember there is some command I can run against binaries that will tell me what gcc (and linker, etc..) built them. so far my searches have only turned up:

gcc -v (Shows me what version of GCC I have)


uname -a (which shows me all the kernel info except which GCC built it)

Any suggestions?

But if the binary is stripped i.e. built with the -s flag, then I dont think nm will output anything.

awk '{print $5,$6,$7}' /proc/version

or just
awk '{print $7}' /proc/version

to get the version number directly - 4.1.1 in my case.

I've been on vacation, but the answers referring to /proc/version are exactly what I needed!Smilie
