The easiest way is going to be to use software collections:


devtoolset 7 will install gcc 7 in a directory in /opt, which will not 
conflict or interfere with existing system packages. When you want to 
use gcc 7, you'd start a new shell with a modified path and other 
environment variables using:

   scl enable devtoolset-7 bash
