Description romano 2000-10-08 14:14:54 EDT
I generated a new key with keygen -d (openssh-2.1.1p4-1) and then my
ssh-agent does not 
accept that key with the following (strange) error: 

(0)hazel:~% ssh-add .ssh/id_dsa
Bad key file .ssh/id_dsa: Success
Comment 1 romano 2000-10-09 03:27:26 EDT
Additional note: I resolved the problem by upgrading to openssh-2.2.0p1. I
discovered that _before_
doing the upgrade to rh7 I had the 2.2.0 package installed and working;
strangely enough, the
upgrade process did downgrade my version of openssh.

My DSA connections are working ok with 2.2.0 (client and server).
Comment 2 romano 2000-10-10 05:40:24 EDT
OK. Solved with the update.
