Any reason these are not included in the > john-1.6.37 version? Yes, there are a few reasons (excuses?) - 1. I don't want to force people to download the same files over and over with each minor update to the development versions. 2. John is currently being developed as a part of Owl. This means that all of its latest source code lives in the Owl CVS repository. I do not want binary files to be stored there. And it is convenient for me to distribute the exact same tarballs that are formed during Owl builds. But I might re-consider this... > Pulled them from 1.6, are there any compatibility problems between > them that your aware of? There are no compatibility issues between *.chr files for John 1.6 and current 1.6.x development versions. In John 1.6.37 and 1.6.38, the README says: "There're no charset files included with development versions of John. You're supposed to take them from John 1.6 distribution." 1.6.39+ and 1.7 are going to have this in the FAQ instead of the notice in the README: Q: I am getting the error "fopen: ./all.chr: No such file or directory". Q: Where are the charset files? A: Development versions of John the Ripper might not include the charset files. You're supposed to take them out of the latest official release. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
