That is definitely not true. If you have really tried there should be a result. Probably not the expected one, but something else happened. So what have you done and what was the response?

A beginner might not recognize that # is the default prompt for root, so the command after that is something you are suggesting be typed when logged in as root.

using "gcc-c++" is a happy accident , in that is will install things needed as dependencies
but the full command would be
Code:
su -
------- type in your root password when asked for -------
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

# 7 .

The current kernel version is `3.14.4-200.

If you want the PAE kernel "headers", these packages are required :
# yum install kernel-PAE kernel-PAE-devel

* And you will have to reboot the computer, to use the new kernel.
