Below are the detailed steps. Cool. However, I just noticed that the john build you're trying to fuzz on super appears to include OpenCL or/and CUDA support. (I am judging by its ridiculous address space usage at 21 TB, which is typically caused by those libraries.) You could speed up its startup by building it without those features, and thus having it linked to fewer libraries. Each additional library slows down startup of a dynamically-linked binary. ./configure --disable-opencl --disable-cuda Well, except in cases where you're fuzzing this functionality. Alexander
