You're correct that -msse2 needs to be added. I added it to OMPFLAGS: OMPFLAGS = -fopenmp -msse2 Then john-1.7.6-omp-des-7 compiled and ran just fine, albeit a lot slower than it does on the same machine with an x86-64 build, as expected. I am getting something like 6.5M c/s for 32-bit build vs. 10M c/s for 64-bit with 8 threads on the same Core i7 machine (quad-core with HT). This is for DES-based crypt(3). For LM hashes, the difference is smaller: either does over 40M c/s, which is unoptimal in either case (you're better off using john-1.7.6-fast-des-key-setup-3 instead, without OpenMP but maybe with multiple instances). john-1.7.6-omp-des-4 also builds and works "fine", but shows no speedup from the use of multiple threads at all. There must be some data layout issue only affecting 32-bit builds, since this same patch works well and sometimes outperforms -omp-des-7 on x86-64 (which is why I keep both patches on the wiki). In short, I am unable to reproduce the problem. WORKSFORME. But I did not specifically try "your" version of gcc, etc. What we do know from this reliably is that these patches are not "fundamentally" x86-64 only. (But you do need x86-64 for decent performance anyway.) ...Oh, here's a guess: maybe you forgot to "make clean" after making some change, such as a Makefile edit? An inconsistent build can fail like you describe, of course. Alexander
