I've placed these into the contrib/ directory and updated the links at: http://www.openwall.com/john/#contrib You may also find the files on Erik's website at: http://www.macunix.net/JTR/ The Mac OS X build is usable on a wide range of Mac hardware and versions of Mac OS X - it is a universal binary with four architectures and it is statically-linked against Erik's special build of OpenSSL. Additionally, it uses faster bitslice DES S-box code for PowerPC with AltiVec by Dumplinger Boy (Dango-Chu). For some hash types, it may be preferable to run the "32-bit" version of the code when you're on a 64-bit Intel-based Mac. This is primarily because some contributed "formats" (included in the jumbo patch) have MMX or SSE2 optimized code for 32-bit mode only. To invoke this version of the code, you may run the universal binary through "arch -i386", e.g.: arch -i386 ./john --test --format=pix-md5 For many other hash types, the above will actually hurt performance, so only use it when you know what you're doing. Erik - thank you! Alexander
