Installing gcc 4.8 and Linuxbrew on CentOS 6
The GCC distributed with CentOS 6 is 4.4.7, which is pretty outdated. I'd like to use gcc 4.8+. Also, when trying to install Linuxbrew you run into a dependency loop where Homebrew's gcc depends on zlib, which depends on gcc. Here's how I solved the problem.
