Hi there,

I'm trying to install a tar.gz file with no luck
I'm using SuSE 9.3 pro
the tar.gz file is john-1.6.40.tar.gz
after the following
su
tar zxvf john-1.6.40.tar.gz
cd john-1.6.4o
cd src
make
make linux-x86-any
after that I get aan errer like this :-
linux:/home/laverion/john-1.6.40/src # make linux-x86-any-elf
make: *** No rule to make target `linux-x86-any-elf'. Stop.
linux:/home/laverion/john-1.6.40/src # make linux-x86-any
ln -sf x86-any.h arch.h
make ../run/john ../run/unshadow ../run/unafs ../run/unique \
JOHN_OBJS="DES_fmt.o DES_std.o DES_bs.o BSDI_fmt.o MD5_fmt.o MD5_std.o BF_fmt.o BF_std.o AFS_fmt.o LM_fmt.o batch.o bench.o charset.o common.o compiler.o config.o cracker.o crc32.o external.o formats.o getopt.o idle.o inc.o john.o list.o loader.o logger.o math.o memory.o misc.o options.o params.o path.o recovery.o rpp.o rules.o signals.o single.o status.o tty.o wordlist.o unshadow.o unafs.o unique.o DES_bs_b.o x86.o"
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/laverion/john-1.6.40/src'
gcc -c -Wall -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -funroll-loops DES_fmt.c
make[1]: gcc: Command not found
make[1]: *** [DES_fmt.o] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/laverion/john-1.6.40/src'
make: *** [linux-x86-any] Error 2



I think it has to do with gcc

Have a look at this thread and the referenced article.
Normally there would be a readme or such in the package - and I would expect a ./configure would be required normally.

What distribution are you running? It appears you don't have gcc installed... which I find kinda scary...

Also, you are going a level too deep by going into /home/laverion/john-1.6.40/src. You should just go into /home/laverion/john-1.6.40 and then do ./configure. Also, you don't need to be root until close to the end, when you hit the make install step. You will need gcc installed as well. You must have done the desktop no development install of one of the rpm based distros. You can use yum or whatever package manager you have to install gcc, or install it from the cdrom that you used to install the distro. Yum is much easier, as it handles the dependencies for you. So in short:

Code:
$ cd ~/john-1.6.40
$./configure
$make
$su
#make install
Peace,
JimBass

For Firefox, you just need to untar and then run the executable. Really wish people would read the installation instructions.
