I did the alternate install and that seemed to make the DNS lookup work for some reason. Anyways, it works.
Geocity is paid, but GeoLite City is free, and that's what I'm trying to install.
This is what I get when I try uncommenting
LoadPlugin="geoip_city_maxmind GEOIP_STANDARD /home/MyUserName/MyWebsite/awstats/GeoLiteCity.dat"
Error: Plugin load for plugin 'geoip_city_maxmind' failed with return code: Error: Can't locate Geo/IP.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.4 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl . ./lib ./plugins) at (eval 4) line 1.
