Re: using {CRYPT} for rootpw, using SHA512?

Only the first example given is actually crypt() in the strict sense;
the second example given is an glibc extension to crypt (SHA-512
(since glibc 2.7))

So if that is going to work cross-plattform, you must have a recent
version of glibc everywhere, I guess. Details in "crypt(3)"...

Well, as long as the only place the password is checked/hashed happens to be the LDAP server (running on reasonably recent glibc), it should work fine even
for non-glibc-based clients.
