I doubt it's AVX in particular, because the core JtR tree checks for AVX at runtime and fails gracefully if it's built for AVX but the system (the CPU and/or the kernel) lacks AVX support. Ditto for XOP (and even for SSE2 in 32-bit builds). Or have we broken that in jumbo, maybe along with autoconf'ing it? This is worth checking. What jumbo certainly doesn't get "right" is checking for in-between flavors (SSSE3, SSE4.1) and for AVX2 and AVX-512. So maybe it's an SSSE3 or SSE4.1 or AVX2 build failing on a CPU lacking these. Whatever this is, magnum is right - a distro should provide multiple binaries. For some of the flavors that JtR is able to check for at runtime, there's support for runtime fallbacks that a distro should use. For jumbo-specific use of SSSE3, SSE4.1, AVX2, and AVX-512, there's currently no such support, though. Alexander
