When building pygame on Fedora 21 via pip+hg, I get the following error message:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lporttime
The common solution found on the internet (which worked for me) is creating a symlink from libportmidi.so to libporttime.so:
cd /usr/lib64 sudo ln -s libportmidi.so.0.217 libporttime.so
However, it'd be nice if pygame was able to detect the dependency properly and link to the correct library. Thanks for your work!
