hostbased authentication fails with "cannot get sockname for fd" (ssh-keysign)
Last modified: 2008-06-11 00:36:21 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading to Fedora9, I get the following whenever I try to connect to a
server (which supports hostbased authentication), I get:
cannot get sockname for fd
ssh_keysign: no reply
hostbased authentication fails. Adding some print statements to the source, it
seems that getsockname (called from get_socket_address) fails with EBADF (it
thinks the socket is bogus). "setenforce 0" didn't help.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ssh host (remote host needs to support hostbased auth)
hostbased auth fails
hostbased auth works
openssh-5.0p1-3.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
Can you please test the update from testing updates?
yum isn't finding an update from the updates-testing repo. I'm not seeing a new
openssh package in
Does it take a while for the package to make it up?
Yes, the update has not yet been pushed into the repository, hopefully later
this day or tomorrow. You can find it in koji.fedoraproject.org. You'll also
have to update pam from the last F9 build as well.
OK, I grabbed the packages from koji. This bug seems to be gone with the new
