I keep getting the error

No password hashes loaded (see FAQ)

when entering this line in BT5

./john --format=MD5 pwd.txt

When I try using "raw-MD5" as the format I get this error

Unknown ciphertext format name requested

I've tried following the FAQ answer on the JTR sire, but I hasn't worked. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Archey

Don't know if you have tried this or not, but try running format with a single line "-" rather than two lines "--".

./john -format=MD5 pwd.txt

Also make sure you have a ":" instead of "=", very important you pay close attention to these details or it won't work.

./john -format:MD5 pwd.txt

Have you tried using SUDO?

Edit: Try this tutorial, http://www.osix.net/modules/article/index.php?id=455

try pointing john to the hash file without setting any format to see what he detects. Also you could post a sample of pwd.txt

I have tried that, but it says it finds two passwords and I assume it'll try all hashes, thus taking longer.

sample of pwd.txt:

User:5d41402abc4b2a76b9719d911017c592

Also tried without a capital "U"

It worked here, im using john with the jumbo patch

[root@arcsys john]# ./john -format:raw-md5 -wordlist:password.lst hak5 
Loaded 1 password hash (Raw MD5 [raw-md5 64x1])
hello            (User)

That's with a wordlist, im trying to do a brute force method. Good to know wordlist method works though

do you think it would be something with my install or JTR?

seems it has something to do with the format option, if i dont have it it'll run, but take forever. but as soon as i put -format:MD5 or -format:raw-MD5 i get Unknown ciphertext format name requested error. and if i have any other option i get the initial error.

I was using John the Ripper 1.7.8 (stable, Unix - sources, tar.gz, 830 KB), I'll try the Jumbo 6 one

I installed jumbo-6, i kept getting an error when compiling the source, and im still getting the same errors with 1.7.8
