Does anyone have any ideas for how to get a newer compiler into the build?
I followed simotek's suggestion from SuperUser and branched the gcc47
package into my own project, but I just couldn't convince it to build
properly on RHEL 5/6 due to unresolvable dependencies, possibly because
of the different structure of openSUSE's base system.
Ideally we could just pull the packages from
but I understand
that might be hard to make work.
They would install the compiler in /opt which means you have to mess around
(And in any case, you would want the current devtools-4.)
I'm actually looking into a similar thing, myself. And devtoolset-2 is
the last version for RHEL/CentOS 5, as newer devtoolset versions are
I would prefer to use newer versions whenever possible, obviously. :)
