You can either just untar the twisted to someplace like /opt/local/Twisted and add that dir to your PYTHONPATH everywhere, or use darwinports to install. If you choose darwinports the instance of python it installs is in /opt/local, and the default one is in /usr/bin or something so you'll have to do some fiddling to use the python it installs by default. I choose the PYTHONPATH way myself, I like to just be able to get the latest changes to twisted via subversion or what not and keep all of the documentation and files together.
I have not tried to use the setup file, never really found a need for it.
Hope this helps somewhat.

I've hit some problems installing twisted 1.3.0 on OS X / python 2.4.
The biggie is that I can't find any trace of installation instructions (pre-requisites, installation instructions) anywhere. The tarball README refers to INSTALL, and INSTALL doesn't exist.
I attempted a simple "python setup.py build" and the build bombs out after a while with:
running build_scripts error: file 'bin/manhole' does not exist
So... help a newbie out. What am I doing wrong?
