    Pyhon 3.6 shows GCC 5.4 not 7.3 on Ubuntu 18.04.

    Hi,

    Just upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 and checked out the Python versions installed by default.

    When I run Python, version 2.7 is executed and I see [GCC 7.3.0] on linux2.

    However when I run python3 I get [GCC 5.4.0 20160609] on linux.

    Why is Python 3.6 not picking up GCC 7.3?

    How do I fix this problem?

    Thanks for any help.

    Here I have
    Code:
    $ python3
    Python 3.6.5 (default, Apr  1 2018, 05:46:30) 
    [GCC 7.3.0] on linux
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>>

    You said you "upgraded", probably you have some left over configurations. Check your .profile and .bashrc to start.

    Edited: Here in a clean install of 18.04 gcc5.4 is not even installed.

    Python doesn't "pick up" gcc - AFAIK the message is telling what version of gcc it (the python binary) was compiled with
