I have been trying to install ROS on Snow Leopard using the command, 

rosinstall ~/ros

It tries to install py25-wxPython (which I understand is a dependency), but
gives this error message, 

[ rosmake ] rosdep install failed: Error: Cannot install py25-wxpython for
the arch(s) 'x86_64' because
Error: its dependency wxWidgets is only installed for the arch 'i386'
Error: and does not have a universal variant.
Error: Unable to execute port: architecture mismatch

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/rosinstall", line 5, in <module>
    pkg_resources.run_script('rosinstall==0.5.15', 'rosinstall')
line 442, in run_script
    self.require(requires)[0].run_script(script_name, ns)
line 1167, in run_script
    exec script_code in namespace, namespace
line 549, in <module>    
line 540, in rosinstall_main
line 462, in check_call
    raise CalledProcessError(retcode, cmd)
subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command 'source
/Users/sagnikdhar/ros/setup.sh && rosmake ros --rosdep-install' returned
non-zero exit status 1

I have installed wxWidgets for x86_64 manually (because 'port' doesnt have
the 64 bit version), but I guess it is not able to detect it. Any solutions

Thank you.
