Build-Essentials in CentOS?

If you are like me, you may be doing this to install essential build libraries to compile something from source

# wrong method
yum install build-essential

πŸ™‚ Build essential is a Ubuntu / Debian package. On CentOS, you need to do this

yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

Warning: This will install all development tools approx 49 packages closing to 65MB
