Hello, and Welcome!
We’re glad you’re here. This is a forum for developers using Red Hat Software Collections (RHSCL). You can discuss topics on installation, getting started, or other issues related to developing with RHSCL.
We encourage you to reach out to the Red Hat Developer Community through this forum with your development questions. You can also generate some discussions on relevant topics. Don’t be afraid to post. Other forum participants are your peers and they will most likely appreciate the discussions as well.
If you are trying RHSCL for the first time, see Get Started with RHSCL on developers.redhat.com. These guides take you from setup to Hello World in just a few minutes for the latest versions of Node.js, Perl, PHP, Python, and Ruby. These guides show the essential commands for working with RHSCL.
Need a subscription that includes RHSCL? Developers can get a no-cost Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Suite subscription for development purposes by registering and downloading through developers.redhat.com. We recommend you follow our Getting Started Guide which covers downloading and installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux on a physical system or virtual machine (VM) using your choice of VirtualBox, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, or Linux KVM/Libvirt. For more information, see Frequently asked questions: no-cost Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Suite.
The other ways in which you can communicate with Red Hat, or the developer community, include:
- Bugzilla for Red Hat Software Collections
- RHSCL mailing list: email@example.com. Public SCL upstream mailing list available for every-body who wants to discuss topics related to softwarecollections.org project. Click here to sign up:
- Log a question on Stack Overflow with the tag ‘rhel-scl’
- If you are a Red Hat customer with an active subscription with support, you can log a ticket on the Customer Portal
- Attend a Red Hat meetup
- The open source community that is the upstream for RHSCL can be found at softwarecollections.org, also known as SCLo. You can connect with other developers, create and host new collections for your projects on the SCLo site. There is also a Software Collections Special Interest Group (SIG) under the CentOS project. Note: While SCLo may be the upstream source for many RHSCL packages, only the packages in RHSCL are officially supported by Red Hat.
Note: Questions about the GCC, Eclipse with C/C++ Development Tools, SystemTap, valgrind, oProfile collections should be directed to the Developer Toolset forum. Red Hat Developer Toolset (DTS) provides the latest C, C++, and Fortran development tools. It is a separate product that is distributed via RHSCL using software collections.
Have fun and remember to stay on topic. It’s also a good practice to search for previous posts related to your topic before making a new post.
