Comment 1 Miloslav Trmač 2005-11-29 22:20:08 UTC
lib/user.c will have to create 128 bits of salt (not just 128/6 characters),
not separated from the hash with $.

Can't be tested without glibc support, though.

Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2008-01-09 16:28:46 UTC
The glibc maintainer decided blowfish support will not be added, see
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=173834#c2 .

Rawhide libuser-0.56.7-1 supports SHA256 and SHA512.
