I've been following the instructions on ( to install ros/fuerte on a macbook...(OSX 10.8). I get to the line:

brew install ros/fuerte/swig-wx

which generates the following error:

bash-3.2$ brew install ros/fuerte/swig-wx ==> Cloning git:// Cloning into '/Library/Caches/Homebrew/swig-wx--git'... fatal: remote error: Repository not found. Error: Failure while executing: git clone --no-checkout --depth 1 --branch upstream/1.3.29 git:// /Library/Caches/Homebrew/swig-wx--git

In the troubleshooting part of the page, it says that the git repository has been removed, and provides some code.

require 'formula'

class SwigWx < Formula url 'git://', {:using => :git, :tag => '1.3.29_fuerte'} homepage '' version '1.3.29'

def install ENV.universal_binary system "./configure --prefix=#{prefix}" system "make" system "make install" end


Can anybody tell me what am I supposed do with this code? Or maybe this is a red herring?

Thank You!!!

Ok ... still don't know the answer about what to do with the "Troubleshooting Tip", but the workaround is to run the commands in the file separately:

1) git clone --branch 1.3.29_fuerte git:// /Library/Caches/Homebrew/swig-wx--git

2) cd /Library/Caches/Homebrew/swig-wx--git/

3) ./configure

4) make

5) make install

But I'd still love to know what that file is supposed to be.
