Hi. I have an unusual problem. In the latest release of open ssh. I'm trying to start the ssh daemon back up after recompiling it.
Basically the daemon is in the place of the install directory, which would be.
I mention this, just to let you know that i'm not starting the deamon via a script that is usually located via /etc/init.d or /usr/sbin.
When I do try to execute the script. -> ./sshd start. I get this error:
sshd re-exec requires execution with an absolute path
I have no idea what that error means or what I am supposed to do. In the past all I had to do was untar the package, ./configure --with-proper-arguments, make and then make install. To which I would fire up the daemon ./sshd start in the same directory and it would work!
I am a little lost in this and would greatly appreciate the help.
Extra info. I'm using Fedora Core 1 Linux using the default 2.4.22ntpl kernel. running a p2 233mhz 24mb ram on a 40gig HD.
An absolute path means a path starting from the root directory. So find the part of your script that execs the daemon and if it's a relative path (i.e. not starting at the root dir), change it to be one. No idea why sshd would need this.
