Description Frank Arnold 2012-03-07 11:50:17 EST
Created attachment 568360 [details]
Use a default value if /proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled does not exist

This is a very low priority RFE, because the problem does not happen with stock RHEL kernels.

Description of problem:
When running a kernel without FIPS support, the sshd init script will fail with the following output while trying to generate the SSH1 RSA host key:

cat: /proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled: No such file or directory
/etc/init.d/sshd: line 50: [: too many arguments
Generating SSH2 RSA host key: [  OK  ]
Generating SSH2 DSA host key: [  OK  ]
Starting sshd: [  OK  ]

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

The attached patch fixes the issue.
