freenx-server uses DSA keys deprecated with OpenSSH 7
Last modified: 2016-12-20 10:43:20 EST
Description of problem:
freenx-server generates DSA SSH keys by default, which are not supported by default by OpenSSH 7 introduced with Fedora 23.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : freenx-server
Version : 0.7.3
Release : 35.fc23
Name : openssh
Version : 7.1p1
Release : 5.fc23
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install freenx-server from the repositories.
2. Run nxsetup --install
The nx user cannot connect to SSH using its DSA keys:
Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic,password).
SSH server says:
userauth_pubkey: key type ssh-dss not in PubkeyAcceptedKeyTypes [preauth]
The nx user should be able to connect without the user having to reconfigure the keys.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
