Lets start with installing colorgcc :
sudo yum install colorgcc Now once that is done, you will need to ensure that the call to g++, gcc and others that you want to use, you will need to create a link in the “~/bin” directory, like so:
for i in g++ gcc c++ cc do
ln -s $(which colorgcc) ~/bin/$i
done The one liner above will create the links for colorgcc as **** your favourite compiler in your homedir.
