I'm trying to install Pipe Viewer on a CentOS 6.2 minimal system.

When I run:

yum install pv

I get:

* base:
* extras:
* updates:

No package pv available.
Error: Nothing to do

Do I need to add another repo? If so, which one and how do I add it?

The pv package is available from the RPMForge repository. Follow the instructions at that link to install it.

You could also download and install the package a la carte - See the RPM search engine,

Here's the pv package page.
