The full posting (including the patch) is at: http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2009/09/02/3 Additionally, I've since added the patch to: http://openwall.info/wiki/john/patches ftp://ftp.openwall.com/pub/projects/john/contrib/ This is john-22.214.171.124-generic-crypt-1.diff.gz - generic crypt(3) support. No one has followed up on my posting in here (bad!), but surprisingly there's a "video response" on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETjPnLmdNHg&hd=1 This video shows that the patch does in fact work on recent Ubuntu, cracking "SHA-crypt" hashes. :-) Alexander
