    Software installation problems / Terminal comprehension issues
    Hi to all, please do forgive for idiotic mistake as I am quite new to Mac's.

    I am trying to install a open source software called "3D Slicer" but i just can't get it to work and I think I'm in over my head. I'll try my best to explain and provide all the information i can and I am really hoping a kind samaritan will be able to help....

    The link to the download page ""

    I have down load the latest stable version "Mac OSX-Darwin x86 Intel 3.6.3-2011-03-04"

    Oh btw I have a Macbook Pro running MAX OS X version 10.6.7

    Once i've extracted the folder, I try to run the file "Slicer 3" and this is the message i get in Terminal and i have no idea what it really means....
