In version 188.8.131.52-all-5, patch line 66 in options.c removing (or commenting out) "FLG_MAKECHR_CHK | ", and recompile. Then the above command will work as intended (I've just tested it). The reason why "--make-charset" and "--format" are declared incompatible is that the "--format" specification won't be honored when you don't specify any password files on the command line. In that case, the entire john.pot will be processed by "--make-charset", without a hash type filter that "--format" option could be expected to provide. > I was trying to create a custom CHR for just this one pwdump input file.

OK. Please try patching options.c as suggested above. Please let the list know of your results - including whether the highly-focused custom .chr file actually worked better for you or not. > [...] It appears that DumbForce is faster than using --external AND > an -i:all6 anyways (see below) [...] Please re-post this as a follow-up to the correct thread (use your mail reader's "Reply" feature on a message in that thread to ensure that the headers are set correctly), then I might comment on it. I don't want us to mix up the two threads - that would be a disservice to those browsing archives of this list on the web.
