#100 closed defect (fixed)

severals errors in openssh-server in RC4

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: nico
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.0-rc5
Component: packages Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc: bruno@…


Problem 1

in /etc/init.d/S50sshd, line 6:


must be:


or openssh-server compiled to use ssh_${type}_host_key instead

Problem 2

openssh-server require a sshd user and group to run
the ipkg install script need something like this:

echo 'sshd:!:99:99:sshd:/var/empty:/bin/false' >> /etc/passwd
echo 'sshd:x:99:' >> /etc/group

Problem 3

When starting, openssh need an empty directory to drop privilege, by default it's /var/empty
but /var is a ramdisk, then this directory need to be created at startup
so, the file /etc/init.d/S50sshd must have at line 3:

mkdir /var/empty 2> /dev/null
