I’m trying to install Bro on CentOS 6.9.
When I’m trying to configure I get an error complaining that gcc needs to be version 4.8 or above.
CentOS 6.9 comes with 4.7.7 and the main repo does not have 4.8.
And you are not supposed to upgrade the 6.x working environment to 4.8.
So I followed this forum post (of many similar) to create an environment where 4.8 is installed:
# sudo yum install centos-release-scl # sudo yum install devtoolset-3-toolchain # scl enable devtoolset-3 bash
gcc (GCC) 4.9.2 20150212 (Red Hat 4.9.2-6)

But when I run ./configure, it quits with this error:
CMake Error at cmake/RequireCXX11.cmake:40 (message):
GCC version must be at least 4.8 for C++11 support, detected: 4.4.7
Call Stack (most recent call first):
– Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

which seems like it running in the original environment not in the scl devtoolset-3 environment.
Besides upgrading to CentOS 7.x (because enterprise standards), any suggestions?
