Subject: Aleksey's daily status report #10


- tried binary on 32bit debian, mageia, mint, ubuntu, opensuse, fedora

Observations and problems

- johnny built on debian stable works everywhere
  That's good.

- on all platforms john package is called john

- qt package has different names
  libqtgui4 on debian/ubuntu/mint/mageia, libqt4-x11 on opensuse and
  qt-x11 on fedora

- john is at /usr/bin/john or /usr/sbin/john
- johnny could not find and use john only on opensuse
  because on opensuse john has permissions rwxr-x--- so johnny could
  not call john under user.

- johnny crashes under root on opensuse
  when I try to open hashes file. Though on my debian it works. I did
  not try on other systems.

- johnny does not say anything if user tries bad john path
  including case of opensuse above (if user inserted path by hands).
- also johnny allows to choose not executable file choosing path to john
  Not user friendly. I think I could fix this one or even both point
  before release.

To do

- fix dialog to choose path to john
  I think there should be some property for this. Otherwise I'll
  postpone it.
- add message when johnny could start john
  Also I think it would be nice to report exit code.
- build .deb
- test it on various distros
- add johnny to system menu
- build .rpm
- test it on various distros
