Hi everyone,
             There is a linux replacement for crypt called mcrypt. It 
includes all Solaris crypt functionality plus lots more.

It is at

it requires mhash and libmcrypt libraries to compile (the libmcrypt 
libraries are also available at the above site). Once compiled the command

mcrypt -a enigma -o scrypt --bare XF86Config.txt

produces a file indistinguishable from a file produced by solaris crypt and

mcrypt -d -a enigma -o scrypt --bare

will decript a file produced by solaris crypt.
