I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of Developer Toolset
in version 7 on CentOS Linux 6 x86_64, delivered via a Software
Collection (SCL) built by the SCLo Special Interest Group

You can get started in three easy steps:

    $ sudo yum install centos-release-scl
    $ sudo yum install devtoolset-7
    $ scl enable devtoolset-7 bash

At this point you should be able to use gcc and other tools just as a
normal application. See examples bellow:

    $ gcc hello.c
    $ sudo yum install devtoolset-7-valgrind
    $ valgrind ./a.out
    $ gdb ./a.out

In order to view the individual components included in this collection,
including additional development tools, you can run:

    $ sudo yum list devtoolset-7\*

This collections is CentOS-based rebuild built by SCLo SIG community,
and the packages have been available in Red Hat Software Collections 3.0
for RHEL:


So, for RHEL-based builds, follow the steps in the documentation above.

About Software Collections
Software Collections give you the power to build, install, and use
multiple versions of software on the same system, without affecting
system-wide installed packages. Each collection is delivered as a group
of RPMs, with the grouping being done using the name of the collection
as a prefix of all packages that are part of the software collection.

The SCLo SIG in CentOS
The Software Collections SIG group is an open community group
co-ordinating the development of the SCL technology, and helping curate
a reference set of collections. In addition to the collection NodeJS
being released here, we also build and deliver databases, web servers,
and language stacks including multiple versions of PostgreSQL, MariaDB,
Apache HTTP Server, Python, Ruby, Ruby on Rails and others.
