Date: Wed, 17 Jan 2018 20:16:40 +0100 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: john-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: run/ztex/ in binary builds Hi, Now that we have the run/ztex/ directory in the source tree pre-populated with bitstreams, those also get into custom builds that people in our community may be making - even if the builds were made without "--enable-ztex". That's wasteful. For example, this is the case for "john-22.214.171.124-jumbo-macosx_v3.zip (64-bit x86 AVX2) (36.2 MB)" and "john-126.96.36.199-jumbo-macosx_sse2.zip (64-bit x86 SSE2) (36.2 MB)" currently on the wiki and in contrib: http://openwall.info/wiki/john/custom-builds#Compiled-for-Mac-OS-X I am posting this message to: 1. Inform those making custom builds that they should exclude the run/ztex/ directory from the archives. (Not add "--enable-ztex", which is for advanced users who would likely make their own builds.) 2. Suggest that we consider excluding this directory from run on builds without "--enable-ztex". Maybe we should have the bitstreams in a subdirectory of src, which we'd copy to run only in "--enable-ztex" builds? The copying will be wasteful, but it'd affect only a minority of users, whereas the pre-existing directory will likely continue (despite of my request above) to get into archives that more people use. We already do such copying for OpenCL kernels. Alexander
