Re: [pygame] Pygame trouble on the Mac

Thank you Casey.

This is odd though... The app doesn't run. Take a look at the earlier
code from the book... On my Mac machine it'll open up the window, show
the background, have a cursor there, but the cursor doesn't move with
the mouse, its all just frozen and it sorta crashes. I have to
Force-Quit the python app... Is this just my ignorance? Is there
something I just don't know about?

...And from what you say, this warning problem will be gone in the
next release of Pygame? ... I'm new to this whole Python, Django and
Pygame world. It's look exciting though, and I love to develop on my
Mac. So I really hope I can iron out the little things. There is so
much to learn about the Terminal and the way Python works... I've only
ever been used to PHP and MAMP before... I'm trying my hardest to find
decent resources...
