I 'm trying to install phenix 1.8.2-1309 on a Macbook Pro (os x 10.7.5).

First tried the binary installer proposed (which is indicated for os x 
It didn't work, ending with  "fix_mac_python: caught error - exiting."

I spotted in the bb that this could've happened because the downloaded 
installer was somehow corrupted, tried downloading it again, but same 

Tried then the source installer: everything OK - except for wxPython, 
giving this error
> Using wxOSX_Cocoa build of wxPython 2.9 alpha version
>   building wxPython-src-
>   ERROR: installation of wxosx_cocoa failed
>   ERROR: installation of wxpython failed
...now I can work with command lines, but the GUI won't work of course.

Your help is appreciated
