Here are the results of the closest guess I can make to what you have.
However, if I do this I won't end up with a clam daemon, which is what
appears to be what you have.

[root at sadev ~]# yum install clamav.i586

Transaction Summary

Update       5 Package(s)
Remove       0 Package(s)

If I want the daemon, I have to specify this:

clamav-scanner.noarch : Clamav scanner daemon
clamav-scanner-sysvinit.noarch : SysV initscripts for clamav scanner daemon
clamav-scanner-upstart.noarch : Upstart initscripts for clamav scanner

And I'm not sure what to do with the server:

clamav-server.i586 : Clam Antivirus scanner server

Note the last one (clamd) which is essential but which your search didn't
IIRC "yum install clamd" was enough to pull in all the others as
