Exclamation null permissions on .ssh dir of a debian etch


I run a debian etch 2.6.18-4-686 and it's not the fist time after i have set permissions in my user home dir .ssh 0600 to see this:
Code:
gabrix@www:~$ ls -la .ssh/
total 0
?--------- ? ? ? ?                ? .ssh/.
?--------- ? ? ? ?                ? .ssh/..
?--------- ? ? ? ?                ? .ssh/authorized_keys
?--------- ? ? ? ?                ? .ssh/known_hosts
This after i ssh-keygened sshkeys and set permissions :
Code:
root@www:~# chmod 0600 .ssh/ -R
I show you some more :
Setting keys up ....
Quote:
gabrix@www:~$ ssh-keygen -t dsa
Generating public/private dsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/home/gabrix/.ssh/id_dsa):
Created directory '/home/gabrix/.ssh'.
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
Enter same passphrase again:
open /home/gabrix/.ssh/id_dsa failed: Permission denied.
Saving the key failed: /home/gabrix/.ssh/id_dsa.
ok because the permissions on the newly created .ssh dir is:
Quote:
d--------- 2 gabrix gabrix 4096 2007-05-30 02:04 .ssh
I try to adjust permissions with chmod as root in my user dir ...
Quote:
chmod 755 .ssh/
i switch back to the dir's user
Quote:
gabrix@www:~$ ls -la .ssh/
total 16
drwxr-xr-x 2 gabrix gabrix 4096 2007-05-30 02:10 .
drwxr-xr-x 45 gabrix gabrix 4096 2007-05-30 02:04 ..
---------- 1 gabrix gabrix 672 2007-05-30 02:10 id_dsa
----r--r-- 1 gabrix gabrix 600 2007-05-30 02:10 id_dsa.pub
... and again:
Quote:
sudo chmod 600 .ssh/ -R
result:
Quote:
gabrix@www:~$ ls -la .ssh/
total 0
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? .ssh/.
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? .ssh/..
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? .ssh/id_dsa
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? .ssh/id_dsa.pub
What's going on ???????

I haven't a clue why your doing what you are there setting the permissions like that I always used the command chmod -R .... with the option first plus when you are setting you should be using 0700. and you do not do it recursively anyways the files in the directory should be created with the proper permissions. What you probably should do is use the 0700 for the directory permission having deleted the files in .ssh directory letting them be recreated make sure you do a chown username:username .ssh as well to have your owner set properly.

Code:
>$  ls -la .ssh/
total 7
drwx------  2 stephen stephen   80 2006-10-16 01:07 .
drwxr-xr-x 56 stephen stephen 3464 2007-05-27 17:51 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 stephen stephen 1694 2007-04-19 11:56 known_hosts
