Subject: RE: Build Issue on Solaris, John v1.7.8 jumbo-5 August 24, 2011


I hope this clears up what I was saying.

When I delete the line below, from the JtR v1.7.8 with jumbo-2 or jumbo-5
stdint.h file, I get a successful build of solaris-x86-64-gcc.  

typedef unsigned long long uint64_t;

I suspect other Solaris builds would be affected the same way.

It is unclear to me if you mean "can I delete this line in order to 
build JtR on this machine?" or "should we delete this line in the Jumbo 
tree?". I initially read it as the former and I take it Solar read it as 
the latter.

By all means, if deleting that line makes it build without problems, 
then you are home free as far as I can imagine.
