yum install SDL-devel

I don't know why it is in upper case, but "yum search sdl | grep devel" said it was named like that.

The original SDL name is SDL, upper case.
Only Debian and the Linux distros that "borrow" the Debian
packages ( like Ubuntu ) uses lower case and the short -dev.

Please always do : # yum search <name>
like : # yum search sdl
and yum will reply : SDL , SDL-devel , etc. etc.
