This is not a Unix 101 mailing list, and in fact the (new) issue of not having a file in the proper directory is not even a Unix one, nor does it have anything to do with John the Ripper. Before we setup the john-dev list for development topics, I was concerned that we often discussed too advanced topics in here, which caused end users to be afraid of asking their John usage questions. Now that we have john-dev, things may be the other way around - the topics that are still being brought up in here may be too basic. What I'd like to see on the john-users list is some healthy mix of basic, intermediate, and advanced John the Ripper usage topics (just not development-only topics, which should now be brought up on john-dev). Since I am posting a message anyway: On Tue, Sep 06, 2011 at 06:03:04PM +0200, pepa06@...ero.it wrote: > toto@...do:~/.john/john/src$ ../run/john psw.tst (btw, the first > method above didn't work) > stat: psw.tst: No such file or directory > > nor did : > toto@...do:~/.john/john/src$ ../run/john psw > work > > note that i copied psw.tst (result of the unshadow command) into all > directories: /john, /run, /src, /doc (you never know... ) Quite obviously, you never placed the file in the current directory (which is ~/.john/john/src in the examples above) or/and you did not actually name it psw.tst, nor psw. No further discussion of this non-John stuff, please. But please feel free to post again once you actually have a John the Ripper usage topic. Alexander
