When I try and run the command:

rosdep install rxtools

When I do the formula tries to install swig-wx but fails to install it. I know I installed it during the initial setup but it failed when brew tried to install it automatically so I had to do it manually using the command ./configure && make && make install.

Is there a way to fix the swig-wx formula to allow the installer to install it or a way to install rxtools without installing swig-wx first?

Swig output:

brew install swig-wx

I can install swig-wx here, can you be more specific about the problem you have installing swig-wx from homebrew?

What version of OS X and Xcode are you using? Have you run brew update recently?

Im running OSX 10.6.8 and Xcode 3.2.6. Yes I've run brew update since the trouble began.

Btw I know it's been awhile but from Groovy, rxtools is deprecated and superceded by rqt
