Description Kent Howard 2000-12-21 02:42:07 EST
encrypt() always returns NULL which according to the documentation means
that the crypt() function "is not available on your system".  The MySQL
RPMS from the MySQL authors also appears to exibit this problem.  However
the 3.22.32 RPMS from the authors works fine.

Confirmed. I'll be looking closer into it (but recommend PostgreSQL anyway :)

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-01-08 18:29:45 EST
This should be fixed in 3.23.30-1, available soon from Rawhide:

mysql> select encrypt("hello");
| encrypt("hello") |
| AmIN6keVM5zyk    |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
