And the answers I've given you still stand. It depends on what version
of Python and what distribution you are talking about.
For the current python.org 2.6 installer for OS X, python 2.6.4, you
just need to install setuptools/easy_install
(http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools) for that python and then use it
to install pyobjc. At the moment, Python 2.6.4 is the only python.org
python that has been fully tested with and is known to work on 10.6
For EPD Pythons, you should ask on an Enthought forum of people who are
familiar with Enthought's OS X distribution. Chances are, though, that
their python2.5 does not allow you to correctly build packages with C
extension modules (such as those in PyObjC) on 10.6. There were fixes
needed for 2.6 to do that and those will not be backported to
python.org's 2.5 which is no longer maintained except for critical
security patches and was last released before 10.6 was released.
Perhaps Enthought has done the backporting and testing.
There is also a mailing list for questions about PyObjC itself:
