    SSH and others borked in Woody
    Submitted by Anonymous on Wednesday, April 11, 2001 – 10:07
    A number of recent breakages to be aware of. Information below.
    Ssh has a couple problems: If you installed the 0.9.6a-1 packages of OpenSSL and libssl, ssh won’t work for you today. This causes some problems with some user’s X configurations. Executing “mv /usr/bin/ssh-agent /usr/bin/renamed-ssh-agent”. Will solve these problems until the packages are updated.
    Note that you still may have trouble remotely logging into a SSH only box that has these problems.
    It seems DRI breaks with the X debs and kernel 2.4.2+ in unstable/testing, because the X dri driver is out of date. Install newer X to fix (try 4.0.3 or DRI cvs debs).
    Put libssl0.9.6 on hold. It breaks things. If it’s too late, to get X working, do startx -e .xsession
    Don’t forget upto the minute information on breakages can be found in #debian or of course on the mailling lists

    Since you are running unstable, you have the latest apt. Also, since this is a problem with the maintainer uploading a new libssl without the new ssh packages it can be fixed with a simple.

    # apt-get build-dep -d ssh

    and then install the produced package.

    [ return ]

    Ok, this is what I did…

    apt-get build-dep -b ssh
    apt-get install libpam0g-dev
    # ssh has a dependency on pam!
    apt-get source -b ssh
    # change the version, so that we will not
    # auto upgrade to the ‘old’ version
    cd openssh-2.5.2p2
    debchange -v 1:2.5.2p2-1a
    debian/rules binary
    cd ..
    # install it
    dpkg -i ssh_2.5.2p2-1a_i386.deb

    I hope that this way, I will automatically upgrade to a new version, when it becomes available.

    Is that the way it should work?

    Terribly sorry all, I meant -b not -d.

    -b is build, which means it will build the package after download.
    -d is download, which means it would only download the files, nothing more.

    Sorry.

    Can you suggest a good apt source for the non-us source packages, the default one (at least for me “http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US unstable non-US”) doesn’t seem to work (404 errors every time).
