My Two CentOS!
It is the latest and greatest for Ham Radio. 
http://hamlib.sourceforge.net/
Or you can get it from Karans Repo "karan.org"

The average ham want have a clue how to use it on CentOS. I've often
thought about a Wiki Article on it. I'm just waiting on Yaesu FT 9000DX
support.

Hamlib is just that a "Libary" other apps interface with the lib to be
able to use it. If the OP wants a turn key system he look the Debian
Way. It provide everything from logging to radio control.
