Cant install devtoolset-8 with Developer subscription

Is the devtoolset not available for RHEL 8?


Hi Martin,

RHEL 8 doesn't work with Software Collections, RHEL 8 uses modules instead.

sudo dnf module list

In RHEL 8 you find the developer tools in the CodeReady Builder repository. :)

sudo subscription-manager repos --enable codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms


RHEL 8.0 carries GCC8 as the system compiler (i.e. "yum install gcc" rather than Developer Toolset) , which was the most recent GCC release at the time of RHEL 8.0 beta.

RHEL 8.1.0 public beta includes the GCC9 application stream, which is packaged as a software collection for consistency and ease of use, and called "GCC Toolset". Hence "yum install gcc-toolset-9" should install the GCC9 bits for you.
