I took the liberty to change the Subject on this reply to make it more informative and easier to find in the list archives.

If not, you can get it from Sunfreeware: http://sunfreeware.com Alternatively, you can install Sun's C compiler and use the appropriate make target. Do you have /usr/ccs/bin in your PATH? You may need to prepend it with: set path=(/usr/ccs/bin $path) for csh, or with: export PATH=/usr/ccs/bin:$PATH for bash. Apparently, this is no longer needed on very recent revisions of Solaris, but yours might not be that recent: http://blogs.sun.com/damico/entry/the_death_of_usr_ccs > *** Error code 1 > Make: Fatal error: Command failed for target 'sparc.h' Unfortunately, this is not very informative (apparently, some preceding error messages are not visible here?) - but the most likely guess is that you did not have all of the needed build tools in your PATH (or installed on the system at all). > Current working directory /john/john-1.6/src You're using an ancient version of John the Ripper. This version 1.6 was released in 1998. Please get a current one from: http://www.openwall.com/john/ ...but you mention a current version in the message Subject. Well, the program messages you've provided are inconsistent with that. > Is it possible I have a copy with missing files? This is very unlikely, and it is not something you need to even consider - because you need to get a copy of a current version anyway. Please try to follow the suggestions above - or, if you run into issues or if you'd rather save the time, you may get John the Ripper pre-built for Solaris at Sunfreeware (see the URL above). When you manage to get this working, please let us (the mailing list) know of the approach you ended up using. I hope this helps, and good luck!
