ATM john loads the configs from $JOHN and $ ../bin/john --list=ext-modes works perfectly, next I've got to work to make it honor the new variables in john.conf for the other files (charsets, *.log, *.pot, etc.) > 6. if partial path file names are given on command line (i.e -pot=jims.pot -wo:mybig_list.dict), then john would search in the dir listed in the john.conf section. > 7. have a env var JOHN_LOCAL_CONF_DIR, and have john and other 'tools' honor that. In fact the bottom local file include could be .include "$JOHN_LOCAL_CONF_DIR/john.local.conf" If JOHN_LOCAL_CONF_DIR is not set in env, then JOHN_LOCAL_CONF_DIR would fallback to $JOHN Should we keep the cuda and opencl kernels dir under bin or make a specific directory for them (e.g. $JOHN/kernels)? *hat tip*, SmilingWolf
