Re: [suse-security] Problems with OpenSSH after upgrading: private keys broken !
Who is you? me? I digress.

Try enabling rsa logins, etc, etc in the config file. Just a wild and crazy

Subject: [suse-security] Problems with OpenSSH after upgrading: private keys
broken !

> Hello,
> Last night I installed the OpenSSH update from YOU, and this morning I
found that all our public keys don't work anymore.
> What's worse, generating new ones doesn't work either.
> Several of our users have been using RSA keys for months now with no
problem at all, we use them for backup jobs and other things where passwords
would cause a problem.
> We tried generating new RSA keys, that help .
> We also tried generating new DSA keys, that didn't help either.
> Has anyone else had this problem?
> Info for the box in question:
> Linux fluorite 2.4.0-64GB-SMP #1 SMP Wed Jan 24 15:52:30 GMT 2001 i686
> SuSE Linux 7.1 (i386)
> VERSION = 7.1
> Please note I did not download and update the box by hand, I used YOU.
> If anyone could provide me with a work-around that doesn't require
entering any sort of pass phrase (remember, programs that's can't type
passwords need it, not humans) I'd really appreciate it.
> Additionally, I'd like to know what caused the problem to begin with - I'm
pretty surprised the upgrade broke they keys, I would think that would cause
serious problems for a lot of people.
