workaround is pretty simple.  symlink authorized_keys2 (or it's target /etc/nxserver/server.id_dsa.pub.key) to authorized_keys
Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2012-06-17 06:48:25 EDT
Thanks for the report; I'm going to do a complete migration on package upgrade instead of using a symlink - it doesn't seem likely to me that authorized_keys2 support is coming back, and authorized_keys has been supported since forever.
