Description Björn Petersen 2008-05-20 14:55:02 EDT
Description of problem:
On an x86_64 system pygame package lacks support of some modules, i.e. font.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install pygame on an x86_64
2. Try to run a program that need pygame.font (In my case I try to run freevo)
Actual results:
Starting freevo gives error:
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/freevo/ RuntimeWarning: use font: No
module named font

Expected results:
Normal run.

Additional info:


trying to run freevo on f9, which uses pygame, give error about
pygame.font missing (use font: No module named font).
Looking in the pygame-package for x86_64, I can't found the
file which can be found in the i386 package.
I think the error is in the file found in source of
pygame. Line 14 should be changed to origlibdirs = ['/lib','/lib64']
so that the config looks for lib-files in both, i386 and x86_64 dir.
(See attached patch-file).
It seems that the SDL_ttf-devel package for x86_64 changed from
Fedora 8 to 9, because in f8 if you have installed the SDL_ttf x86_64 package,
libs were installed in both, /usr/lib and /usr/lib64.
So, another possible solution is to change the SDL_ttf-devel package for
x86_64 to install both libs, for i386 and x86_64 as it was in f8 and
than recompile pygame.

Thank you for your time.

Comment 3 Björn Petersen 2008-05-27 15:31:32 EDT

trying pygame-1.7.1-17 from Fedora Update System now works on my x86_64
Fedora 9 system.
The missing modules are installed and freevo run normal.

Thanks a lot!

Please, from where can I download pygame-1.7.1-17.fc9? I have searched F9
repositories with no success.
Comment 5 Björn Petersen 2008-05-28 06:21:01 EDT

I downloaded the version from Fedora Update System at
Don't know if this is the correct way, or if we have to wait for offical release.
( This is my first bug report ;-) )

Comment 6 Christopher Stone 2008-05-28 09:53:26 EDT
Hi, you should be able to download it like so:

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update pygame

I'll move it over to the regular updates repo soon.
