Following "", installed "numpy nose" and running "cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/ros/fuerte -DSETUPTOOLS_DEB_LAYOUT=OFF":

CMake Warning at build/cmake/rosunit/rosunit-extras.cmake:17 (message): add_pyunit() is deprecated. For Python tests, use add_nostests() instead.

and further down:

CMake Error at /usr/local/Cellar/cmake/2.8.7/share/cmake/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:91 (MESSAGE): Could NOT find wxWidgets (missing: wxWidgets_FOUND)

is it necessary to also install gdal? And if so from where?

Suggestions to fix?

Yes, I got the python warnings too ... they aren't an issue.

Try these instructions ... I think the ones you are following are a little out dated. These worked for me.

Followed your instructions to 1.3.1 Layer 1 with Ok completion until running both Debian & non-Debian DCMAKE commands-not sure which one. Same result "CMake error at rx/tools/CMakeLists.txt.wx-enhanced swig binary not found. Aborting"

OSX is not Debian (linux) so use the the not Debian option. Did you install swig??

I did not explicitly. Did that install get missed in the scripts? What package should I use?

It looks like ros/fuerte/swig-wx is broken (I don't know ruby, so I can't debug it): swig-wx.rb:4: syntax error, unexpected '-', expecting '<' or ' ' or ';'

I got the same error when installing fuerte from source on ubuntu quantal. The swig package (not swig2.0) was needed to fix this error and get me moving again.
