Description Ahmon Dancy 2007-05-09 12:15:25 EDT
Description of problem:

/usr/bin/Crack specifies an obsolete sort option syntax which doesn't work on FC5. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Invoked: /usr/bin/Crack target.passwd

Crack: The dictionaries seem up to date...
Crack: Sorting out and merging feedback, please be patient...
Crack: Merging password files...
cat: run/F-merged: No such file or directory
sort: open failed: +1: No such file or directory
Crack: Creating gecos-derived dictionaries
mkgecosd: making non-permuted words dictionary
mkgecosd: making permuted words dictionary
Crack: launching: cracker -kill run/Khostname.31051   

Proposed fix:
Change line 329 of /usr/bin/Crack from
crack-sort -t: +1
crack-sort -t: -k 2
