I don't know what the exact name is for your distro but in Debian it's called
If you're using it for compiling something then you'd need the dev package called
So the command would be
yum install libsdl-image1.2
yum install libsdl-image1.2-dev
or whatever they are called. Maybe yum has a search function so you could do
yum search sdl-image
and you could find the exact package names that way.

Well, you can Build 'SDL_image' yourself,
... or add the rpmforce repository from

As you can see, the command to do it is
# rpm -Uvh

if you have CentOS 5.x "i386"

Then you can do # yum search SDL, so all SDL can be shown,
and to see that your new repo works.

Next # yum install SDL_image-devel

Good now have access to another 8,300 packages
with the new repo !
