I know that some Linux distribution vendors are building JtR for s390 and s390x. They use "make generic". > I can successfully compile with a make generic, Great. I might want to add a specific make target for this platform later on (after some code re-arrangements). I'll contact you about that (for testing), if you don't mind. There's no performance improvement to expect from that, though, as "generic" does a good job of selecting the most suitable settings. > but the results from ./john --test are pretty poor(results below).
