"make clean linux-x86-64"
It begins to compile and then after a few seconds I get a string of error messages consisting of "error: bad register name (enter various files)"
I figure I might not get any help here given this is a particular version of JtR, but this assignment's due date is creeping up and i've yet to have responses from my professor or other students regarding this matter.
You won't get help here for ANY
version of JtR. Requests for help with hacking/cracking tools are forbidden by LQ rules.
Not meaning to sound nasty, but we only have your WORD for it that it's for a 'class'. We don't know you, or what your real intentions are, and there's no way to prove it either.
