There are times when checking the build options of the running Linux kernel is very relevant.

In the past this would usually be found in /boot/config-xyz, however in recent versions this has been available under /proc/config.gz.
There are situations when this file is however missing, but it's easy to get it back, you just need to load the "configs" kernel module.

modprobe configs

Now the file /proc/config.gz is available, you can inspect it with zcat or zless etc.
