Do you mean i386 or x86_64?
There's no x386_64 and universal-darwin no longer exists. MacTeX (dmg
installer) no longer supports anything below 10.10.
You can try:
tar xvzf install-tl-unx.tar.gz
./install-tl -repository http://ctan.ijs.si/mirror/tlpretest/
# or: [sudo] ./install-tl -repository
(or follow the instructions for rsyncing everything first)
And then add the path to binaries to PATH.
The "sudo" and "-gui" are optional, -gui probably doesn't work unless
you installed Perl/Tk and you only need sudo if you want to install to
a folder where you don't have write permissions. If you install as a
regular user, you should configure the paths (you can also install to
/tmp/texlive for testing).
