Hi everyone,

I grew up with a PC for 18 years and used to know DOS very well. I'm newer to the Mac world and am having troubles installing a program. I hope this is the correct section to post my question.

The program I am installing is called Megatunix and is software for tuning my cars computer. I currently run it on Windows, but the Mac version is better. The Windows version was easy to install but this Mac version is giving me problems.

Here's the original install instructions:

Megasquirt MSEXTRA and MS3EFI support forum • View topic - DEPRECATED ... install MegaTunix on OS-X

This is the error I am getting and I don't understand what it means:

chris-foxs-macbook:~ chrisfox$ sudo port -d selfupdatePassword:
DEBUG: Rebuilding the darwinports base system if needed.
Synchronizing from rsync://
@ERROR: Unknown module 'dpupdate'
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at /SourceCache/rsync/rsync-35.2/rsync/main.c(1398) [receiver=2.6.9]

while executing
"darwinports::selfupdate [array get global_options]"
Error: /opt/local/bin/port: selfupdate failed: Couldn't sync dports tree: sync failed doing rsync
chris-foxs-macbook:~ chrisfox$

Can anyone help me out with this?
QUOTE Thanks
