Package: libscrypt0
Version: 1-2.2
Severity: grave
Tags: upstream
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

The use case of the -dev library, as documented in the README.txt, is:

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <libscrypt.h>
#include <assert.h>

#define PASSWORD "test"

int main() {
        char mcf[SCRYPT_MCF_LEN + 1];
        libscrypt_hash(mcf, PASSWORD, SCRYPT_N, SCRYPT_r, SCRYPT_p);
        assert(libscrypt_check(mcf, PASSWORD) > 0);
        return 0;

You compile the program with:

gcc -lm -lscrypt scrypt-test.c -o scrypt-test

and it fails with:

allan@vent:~/src/yaxto$ ./scrypt-test 
scrypt-test: scrypt-test.c:10: main: Assertion `libscrypt_check(mcf, "test") > 
0' failed.

I grabbed the current version from github 
and it works as expected:

allan@vent:~/src/yaxto$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/src/libscrypt ./scrypt-test

Source: libscrypt
Source-Version: 1.21-1


As stated previously, the bug reported doesn't exist in the version in
unstable; and 1.21 was the version referenced directly by the original
reporter, so I'm marking the bug as closed/fixed in 1.21-1.
