Setting up a remote SSH workspace to a CentOS server



I’ve tried configuring a remote SSH workspace on a server that is running CentOS 7. Setting up the new project was a breeze, but I got stuck on the step where c9 was installing its stuff on my server.

I was getting this error:

Somewhere in the c9 documentation I saw instructions to fix this, also reiterated by support, which is to install g++ that’s included in the “build-essential” package. However there’s no such package in CentOS so you have to look for its counterpart.

Installing the following packages worked for me:

sudo yum groupinstall "Development Tools" sudo yum install ncurses-devel sudo yum install glibc-static

I hope this helps someone else.


Thank you so much for taking the time and writing in about this! You rock!
