If you were compiling from source, here's the info on "pre-requisites":
http://wiki.beryl-project.org/wiki/Compile_requirements

As far as installing from Yum:
http://wiki.centos.org/Repositories
That page suggests CentOS can use RPMForge as a possible repo. SO, one would assume that yes, you could use yum.

Good luck!

Cool

I am not the OP, but I too appreciate your pointers. I was wondering if I could install Beryl on my CentOS 4.4 box as well. Looks like source compilation requires GCC version 4.1 or above, which CentOS 4 sure doesn't have by default. I should look for precompiled RPMs instead. Wish me luck.
