On CentOS 6 I cannot install GeoIP even though many websites describe installing GeoIP with the following commands:

yum install GeoIP GeoIP-devel GeoIP-data

I get No package GeoIP available.

Seems like you need to add an additional repository. In CentOS5 the Geoip stuff was located in Centos Extras. Check out this link: http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories

If the package is not in Extras try out the EPEL repo (howto is in the link above), they have the packages: http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/repoview/letter_g.group.html

It was in EPEL. Extras was already enabled by default. –  unixman83 Mar 24 '12 at 12:51
