    Linux usually uses SHA-1 or SHA-2 if I am not mistaken....

    The shadow file is not in a standard format. C&B says it's not a valid file.

    If JTR can't decrypt it then unfortunately I don't know, if it does not work then it be nice if you let me know how you did it once you find a way that works.
