Read the manpage on yum to start.

Do you have gcc++ installed? If not, yum install "Development tools"
(assuming you're running CentOS 7; if you're on 6, it's yum groupinstall

I suppose, if you really, *really* need a 2GB text editor, you could
install eclipse.

Then, understand that any package *should* install in the correct place.
For some oddities, you might have to set the environment variable

Finally, to see what libraries or compiler tools are available, yum list
lib\*, etc.

Also, check to see if you have rpmfusion and epel repos enabled.
