  1. I'm installing John the Ripper to check my password security, but under RedHat 9 I get an install error when I use make linux-x86-any-elf, I get install error 1. Am I missing something?

    Yes, you're missing the details about that error.

    Sorry, I can't really isolate the error, but here's the output:

    Error is

    : multiple definition of `DES_std_crypt'

    However, as the objects appear to be missing debug code it doesn't tell you what line it was defined on, just a hexadecimal adress..

    You'll have to remove one definition of that, and hope you get the right one.
