    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    It seems DRI breaks with the X debs and kernel 2.4.2+ in unstable/testing, because the X dri driver is out of date.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

    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.
