Maybe by downloading it from their website?? Do they have instructions there.

If you have already tried it, then tell us what the problem was.....

Redhat EL 5.x : "pygame" is in the rpmforge.repo .
# yum install python-game
.. the version is 1.8.1 ...

Or http://www.pygame.org/news.html ref. @pixellany
> http://www.pygame.org/ftp/pygame-1.8.1release.tar.gz
.. version 1.9.1 cannot be build on Redhat EL 5.x, AFAIK.

> > 1) tar xvf pygame-1.8.1release.tar.gz
2) cd pygame-1.8.1release
3) su
4) yum install \
smpeg-devel SDL_ttf-devel SDL_image-devel SDL_mixer-devel \
libpng-devel libjpeg-devel python-devel
( smpeg-devel is in the rpmfusion-free-updates-testing repo.)
5) python setup.py install
.....
