Wasn't able to compile it on a Manjaro ARM. I know that available arch are only 'i686' and 'x86_64' but it is supposed to be able to other arch... Can anyone have a look at this, please ?

Okay, it looks like the outdated patch is not the only problem. The directory structure seems to have changed, and the package() function now fails.

Looking at the community package in ABS, it looks like the PKGBUILDs have diverged significantly. Reconciling them would be a non-trivial amount of work.

I'm not interested in doing that work right now, so I'm orphaning the package for now. @xtrm0 feel free to adopt the package if you're up to the task; otherwise, I may re-adopt it later when I have some time to sort through this.

Sorry, I must have missed the comment.

I'll fix it now.

@jachymb :

To fix the patch problem you need to change the params.h.patch

I think this will work

You will also need to change in PKGBUILD

first you need to change the md5sum of the patch file (line 29). For example my patch file md5sum is : 2594814704667e63847b8a9ee97b7d61

Then you have to replace ( line 88 ) by Link to the new script

And voila you should be able to compile. I hope this will help you.

Hello @CyberShadow, I don't use John the Ripper anymore and I'll disown this. Feel free to update and fix issues.

CyberShadow commented on 2017-04-06 23:42

Config files currently broken, please add "hybrid," to line 72.

Also, shouldn't this have opencl-headers in optdepends or makedepends or something?

md5crypt-opencl is broken for me with nvidia, but I don't think it's a packaging bug.

Added best64.conf but `john --test` still fails in some OpenCL related tests. I'm not familiar with OpenCL so I can't help more.

matse commented on 2015-10-25 20:28

In the PKGBUILD in line 70 "base64" is missing, john complains about missing List.Rules:base64 otherwise,

(tested against opencl-nvidia-beta driver in AUR btw)
