Does anyone know of an update to this patch for support in Linux?
The patch works fine in Mac OSX, but does not seem to work in 
Linux. When I try to run john against the same hashes in Linux it 
returns the error "Self test failed. (get_hash[0])". It seems to be 
breaking during the test of the first hash specified in the 
saltSHA1_fmt.c file.
