I just (after one week of hard trying) installed OSX 10.6.8 in my AMD.

Now I'm trying to install homebrew for rails development... I already have xCode from 10.6.7 dvd, installed ruby and rails..

But homebrew doesn't install anything..

I hit brew install mysql and the cmake installing part go wrong:

brew install mysql

Just solved my problem.

Turns out, we can't build x86_64 binaries with AMD (don't know about Intel cpus). Then, for use homebrew, you must edit the formulas for the programs you want to install.

As an example, lets suppose you want to install mysql:

brew edit mysql

search for def install and, right below, add:

ENV['CFLAGS']=ENV['CXXFLAGS']="-arch i386"

I guess this should work for every program.

PS: If anyone knows how to build x86_64 in AMD, pls post.
