I have installed F18. I want to use the C++11 features that are available in GCC 4.8.1.

I originally asked "when will gcc 4.8.0 be available for f18?". As per the answer to this question, GCC 4.8.1 may not be available so soon for F18, can you please let me know if it will hurt me if I Install GCC 4.8.1 in my system?

Also, I can help. Please let me know what can contribute to make it available?

I am installing Python graph tools from It requires gcc 4.8 or above while f18 has only 4.7 I am installing gcc4.8 from from source Once I am done with that, how can I remove gcc4.7 without causing any problem. Will yum remove gcc remove my 4.7 and retain 4.8?

You have to install it from elsewhere. Older code might not be compatible but if you installing it just to test out new functionality, it won't be an issue.
