I believe this is probably because sshd is started as 'sshd' not /usr/sbin/sshd, and root's path
does not, for some reason, contain /usr/sbin.

There seems to be a new 'setup' package recently which changelog shows something that probably
fixed the problem, whatever it was.

This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.

Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-08-06 22:06:07 UTC
Are you certain this is the version of the package included in RHL?  The init
script uses the full path (/usr/sbin/sshd) when starting the server process, and
it's named "sshd" and not "openssh"....

It was a stock install on a clean disk, but the problem seems to be fixed now.

O-kay.  I'll close this as worksforme for now, then.
