Syncing errors with older Macs

If you're on OSX 10.5 or 10.6, you need to upgrade to Anki 2.0.30, or you may see an error like the following when syncing:

Syncing failed:
'[Errno 1] ssl.c:507: error:0D0890A1:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1verify:unknown message digest algorithm'

2.0.30 does work on these older machines, provided you download the alternate version.

To update, please:

  • visit
  • scroll to the bottom of the page
  • click the "**alternate version**" link to download 2.0.30 for older Macs
  • quit Anki if it's running
  • and install the downloaded file over the old Anki version
