Description Sam James archtester gentoo-dev Security 2020-06-08 20:34:42 UTC
After reporting a pygame test failure [0], it was recommended that I try building media-libs/libsdl2 with --disable-arm-simd.

This resolved the test failures.

It appears that the Pygame developers have hit other issues related to this in this bug [1].

I've added the information to the upstream bug [2].

For now, it may be a good idea to build libsdl2 with this option on 32 bit ARM (arm64 was fine).
