Pimping Centos 7 Part 3: btrfs-progs

Having a current mainline-kernel (Part 1), and using BTRFS (I would not recommend doing likewise, and RedHat won’t continue to support it) having the versionally fitting utilities would be great.

First step: Setting up everything (this list may not be complete, check configure output in step 2 that everything needed ist available)

yum remove btrfs-progs
yum install libuuid-devel libattr-devel zlib-devel libacl-devel e2fsprogs-devel libblkid-devel lzo-devel asciidoc xmlto
git clone https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org

Second step: Script file update.sh

git pull
./autogen.sh
./configure
make && make install && make clean

Execute update.sh by executing build.sh

scl enable devtoolset-7 ./update.sh

The files get installed into /usr/local/bin, check by which btrfs and btrfs --version that everything worked out.
