John McCarthy,

Thanks for joining us in the RH Discussions.

I imagine you went through this source (scroll down at that link, shows what subscriptions to attach, how (with links there).

NOTE The links listed in the block of text below can be found in the link in the previous short paragraph just above this line.

If you use Red Hat Subscription Manager:

On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, you can add these repositories by navigating to Applications → System Tools → Red Hat Subscription Manager.

Then enable the Optional channel for your system. For detailed information, see

Users of Red Hat Satellite can enable the Optional channel by following the instructions at

Since Red Hat Developer Toolset 4.1, the content is available also in the ISO format at, specifically for Server and Workstation.

Packages that require the Optional channel cannot be installed from the ISO image. A list of packages that require enabling of the Optional channel is provided in the Red Hat Software Collections Release Notes.
Beta content is unavailable in the ISO format.

Let us know how this goes,



Hi John,

Executing the following commands should get you going ... :)

sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-devtools-rpms
sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-extras-rpms
sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-optional-rpms
sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms

sudo yum update
sudo yum install devtoolset-8


yeah, Christian Labisch's post above is most likely cleaner.

Thanks Christian - I took the long way



You're welcome, RJ ! You know, together we are strong ... :)
