I am looking over at the screen of that system and see: Makefile:294: recipe for target '../run/john' failed make: *** [../run/john] error 1 something about leaving directory Makefile:185: recipe for target 'default' failed make: *** [default] Error 2 So now what? thank you Bob On 12/12/2016 12:41 AM, Robert Moskowitz wrote: > > > On 12/12/2016 12:14 AM, geo.inbox.ignored wrote: >> *re-sending* 1st attempt did not post >> >> On 12/10/2016 11:43 PM, Robert Moskowitz wrote: >>> I wish to crack a root password from one of my servers.
