anyone have broken ssh in etch/sid?


I just upgraded two Debian Etch/Sid systems the day before yesterday. Afterwards, I can no longer use ssh for remote login from one to the other. ssh was not upgraded, but some other packages were (including libc6 from sid). Now when I try a remote login, I get a message saying the connection is closed by the server. Here are the last lines of the debugging output from "ssh -vvv matt@192.168.0.101":
Code:
debug3: authmethod_lookup keyboard-interactive
debug3: remaining preferred: password
debug3: authmethod_is_enabled keyboard-interactive
debug1: Next authentication method: keyboard-interactive
debug2: userauth_kbdint
debug2: we sent a keyboard-interactive packet, wait for reply
Connection closed by 192.168.0.101
I have tried searching Debian bug reports, but I can't find anything. Any ideas?

Have you tried generating new keys on the server and deleting the line in the clients ~/.ssh/known_hosts ?

Thanks for the advice. Somehow, I didn't need to try it. Yesterday and today I ran apt-get dist-upgrade on both systems and ssh is working again. I do not know what was broken or what was fixed, but everything is working now.

One of lifes little mysteries then.
PS: just read on another forum that a dist-upgrade had borked some file permissions under /tmp and stopped ssh among other stuff. But if it works, good.
PPS: if you're running sid with kde you might want to be a bit careful dist-upgrading ATM: http://lists.debian.org/debian-kde/2.../msg00089.html

apt-get -f install

dpkg-reconfigure --plow ssh

dpkg --configure -a

Probably the second one is best.

in the beggining i tried to downgrade to ssh-stable.
No success

I figured out that was a glibc problem. So i tried to downgrade glibc. No success again.

The third attempt was to downgrade the whole systems to stable. At this point dpkg stopped in the middle of the downgrade (dependencies hell) . It left behind a mixed system with dpkg crashed & ssh not staring at all.

So i decide to start with a clean system

Sid is definitely having a few issues ATM. I suggest waiting for a bit for things to settle down and then doing a dist-upgrade.
