This question seems to have been asked here already. My IT department installed the OS so I don't know how to register it properly but I do have root access. Is there a way to get the same packages using the CentOS repositories maybe? I'd also like to install IceWM but without a compiler I can't even build it myself.

If you come into this Q, one of the duplicate Q's to this actually has a much better answer: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/102354/install-g-on-rhel-6 – slm Nov 24 '13 at 4:47

You should be able to just do yum install gcc-c++ if the repos are set up. Give that a try first (you can see what repos are installed with yum repolist).
