I'm on Precise 5.7.1. I have the devx installed, as well as python 2.7.3.

I've downloaded the tarball from the pygame site, but when I try to install it starts asking for dependencies, and I believe in the past I've spent an hour trying to track them all down and still not getting this thing to work. I figured it would be easier to find a pet package, so I searched for that, and most of the links are dead, but there was this. I think the file has the wrong extension -- it has a .gz extension, but when I change .gz to .pet, it seems to install just fine as a pet package, but it doesn't actually seem to install pygame. How can I fix this?

Saladin, install "python-pygame" from PPM -- It's there!

Oh, thank you. For some reason I didn't see it when I searched for "python" or "pygame", but it does show up when I search for "python-pygame".
