x86_64 build warnings (deleted)

Description Christopher Stone 2006-04-18 22:35:44 UTC
Spec URL:

** NOTE ** You may have to download the src.rpm from


Pygame is a set of Python modules designed for writing games. It is
written on top of the excellent SDL library. This allows you to create
fully featured games and multimedia programs in the python language.
Pygame is highly portable and runs on nearly every platform and
operating system.

x86_64 build warnings

I get a number of potentially problematic build warnings on x86_64 like this:
src/mixer.c:84: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size

These occur in the following files:

* Not relocatable
* Owns directories that it creates
* No duplicate %files
* %{buildroot} cleaned in %clean and at start of %install

Please remove the Requires: on python-abi after importing.


Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2006-04-21 06:18:36 UTC
Obsoletes: python-pygame < 1.7.1
Provides: python-pygame = %{version}-%{release}

The above would be appreciated in order to achieve clean upgrades from the same
(orphaned) package in

The two '='s in the -devel dependency look suspicious:
Requires: %{name} == %{version}-%{release}

Comment 5 Christopher Stone 2006-04-21 17:58:08 UTC
Fixed as release 3.  Perhaps someone on livna could make a pygame-nonfree rpm or
something?  I did not know this rpm even existed! :o)

Comment 6 Wart 2006-04-21 18:03:13 UTC
What was in the livna package that made it non-free?  Perhaps it had a
dependency on smpeg, mp3, or something like that?

Comment 7 Christopher Stone 2006-04-21 18:11:17 UTC
The full package requires smpeg-devel to create a file.  I think that
is the only extra file that is missing.  The -devel package I build includes an
ffmovie.h file, but I think this is okay to include.  Let me know otherwise.

Comment 8 Wart 2006-04-21 18:46:42 UTC
From what I can tell, the ffmovie.{c|h} files are only wrappers that call into
the ffmpeg library to do the actual decoding work.  I don't believe this is a
problem, especially since doesn't get build, resulting in no dependency
on mpeg libraries.

Comment 9 Ville Skyttä 2006-04-21 21:02:18 UTC
ffmovie.h is not too useful in this -devel package though because it contains
"#include <ffmpeg/avformat.h>".

By the way, -devel is missing these (see #include's in installed headers):
Requires: python-devel
Requires: SDL_ttf-devel
Requires: SDL_mixer-devel

Comment 10 Christopher Stone 2006-04-21 23:02:45 UTC
Fixed in release 4.  Thanks.

Comment 11 Christopher Stone 2008-08-15 19:05:35 UTC
Package Change Request
Package Name: pygame
Updated Fedora Owners: xulchris rnorwood

Comment 12 Jason Tibbitts 2008-08-15 20:26:22 UTC
You don't have to make a CVS request to change ownership; the new owner just needs to drop by the pkgdb and click "Add myself to this package", and the existing owner can accept.  When Fedora comes back up, of course.

Comment 13 Toshio Kuratomi 2008-08-23 19:08:54 UTC
cvs done.

Comment 14 Peter Robinson 2010-06-10 20:30:34 UTC
Package Change Request
Package Name: pygame
New Branches: EL-6
Owners: pbrobinson sdz

Comment 15 Kevin Fenzi 2010-06-11 04:13:28 UTC
There is already a EL-6 branch. You should be able to add yourself in pkgdb
