I just installed CentOS 6.2 32 bit today.  When I try to start the 
Virtual Machine Manager I get a error:

Packages required for KVM usage

The following packages are not installed:


These are required to create KVM guests locally.
Would you like to install them now?

If I click on the [YES] button I'm told that the packages could not be 
found in any software source.

[root at mushroom ~]# yum whatprovides "*qemu-kvm"
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
  * base: mirror.cogentco.com
  * extras: centos.mirror.choopa.net
  * updates: centos.aol.com

[root at mushroom ~]#

Does anyone know where one can find qemu-kvm?
