Trying to install pygame on mac

Posted 17 October 2012 - 08:40 PM

Im using python on eclipse and now I am trying to install pygame.

I was following the directions on this website: http://www.pygame.or...%20instructions

And i got to step 6 and did not know what to do:

6. Before compilation of pygame:

a. SDL_x header files refer to SDL as <SDL/SDL_yy.h> However, a SDL directory is not under
the include directory of SDL (SDL/Headers). To fix this in a simple way:

i. Went to directory
/Library/Frameworks/SDL.framework/Headers
then made a link as follows:
ln -s SDL ./

I got to the directory but i don't understand what I am supposed to do after that or basically any step after 6.

I would really appreciate some help on how to get this going.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I bet if you jump into the pygame directory and do sudo python setup.py install it'll work itself out.
