Compile john the ripper


Recommended Posts

Hi all

FIrst time poster on these forums

I am having some trouble compiling john-jumbo1.8 in order to be able to use the rar2john tool in order to crack a password protected rar file.

It compiles but then in the list of rm -f it removes rar2john because it could not compile I'm guessing but I have no clue where to go from here.

Trying to do this on Linux mint.

I only need the rar2john tool or any tool similar that will be able to atleast get the hashes for me.

I just built bleeding-jumbo from github and I've got rar2john, it is a symlink to john:

src $ ls ../run/*rar* -al
lrwxrwxrwx 1 robin robin 4 Feb  8 12:11 ../run/rar2john -> john
src $ ../run/rar2john
Usage: ../run/rar2john <rar file(s)>

If you want to diff our configures, here is mine


If not, try the current source from github and see if that works.

Also managed to get that one working. Dont know why the hell the 1.8 jumbo doesnt work but atleast now i can get cracking thanks for the help.

Also saw that while using bleeding-jumbo that there is an INSTALL-UBUNTU in the docs file that also explains how to compile it from github with some other options
