I just installed wxPython successfully on an imac.  My imac came with
python 2.3.5 pre-installed along with some version of wxPython--I was
able to run a hello world wxPython program by typing:

$ pythonw wxHelloWorld.py

First, I installed a "framework" build of a newer version of python(I
chose 2.4.4 since the download said it has more modules for macs).
The download was called:

python-2.4.4-macosx2006-10-18.dmg

The new python version was automatically installed in /Applications/
MacPython2.4/.  Then I downloaded the wxPython version for Macs with
python version 2.4.  It was called:

wxPython2.8-osx-unicode-2.8.3.0-universal10.4-py2.4.dmg.
