I have just installed allegro5 libraries. I mean allegro, allegro-devel, and few other with their devel packages, however I haven't installed any library that would contain allegro4 dependency. I wanted to set up IDE however I need to run allegro-config in order to get library chain. I simply can't find it. Bash doesn't recognise that command. It isn't also stored in and /usr/ directory. Is this executable not included in fedora's allegro5 package? Does allegro4 have it? Should I report lack of this executable in allegro5?

I had reported the bug, however it was marked as NOTABUG. Use of this binary has been discontinued since allegro 5. It is recommended to use "pkg-config" instead.

For example:

pkg-config --libs allegro-5.0

If you use more libraries than just basic allegro you should enter all of them, separating each two with space.

Yes. It looks like the executable is only in allegro-4:

You can file a bug and let the maintainer clarify what is going on.
