Hiya,
It took some doing, so I thought I'd share my results.

Problem - I have a macbook pro sitting idle most of the day, I want to use it's two nvidia gpu and cpu to do some mining

Solution -
I got GUI miner working from git sources
I had to install pyopencl (worked fine)
I had to install wx from .dmg (worked fine)
GUI miner doesn't come with cpu miner for OSX - so I tried the excellent cgminer, but was having compile issues, so i switched to Phoneix

THe trick to getting phoneix to work is upgrading your twisted (a python event engine) via easy_install
you have to specify architecture like this
sudo env ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64" easy_install --upgrade twisted

it tries to compile PPC, which few people install anymore and thus fails

(edit)
Finally, you have to launch guiminer.py using python in 32 bit mode
so in terminal, the invocation will look like: export VERSIONER_PYTHON_PREFER_32_BIT=yes; python guiminer.py

Happying mining!

pretty darn poor. 6 or so for the two gpu, and about 2.5 on cpu. pushing the CPU harder can yield more from that but at the expense of GPU output.
