ssh periodically disconnects after swaret upgrade -a


Hi,

I installed slackware 10.0, and then swaret as a package, ran the upgrade a few times, and noticed a few quirks in my system following the process for "current' settings.

1.) The system reports a lack of space available (when there is plenty).

2.) The system reboots somewhere during the upgrade -a process

3.) and the most annoying of all, ssh clients get disconnected periodically w/o warning, for no apparent reason.

Here's the packages for the versions past, and currently running:
/var/swaret/rollback/openssh-3.8.1p1-i486-1.tgz
/var/swaret/openssh-4.1p1-i486-1.tgz

The /etc/ssh/ssh_config file is way different than the ssh_config file from a stock 10.1 install too. I find that really interesting.

If anyone has any input, insight, or otherwise as to why these peculiar behaviours are occuring it would be greatly appreciated.

1) It's a bug of a version of Swaret (at least that's what I've read here), try upgrading to the latest one.

Yes I see now that this space issue is a bug of, I guess, the latest release, which is what I d/l'd as a package and installed.

does anyone know why my ssh would be disconnecting periodically afterwards?

Are you doing something when it disconnects you? Probably it has a timeout that disconnects if there's no activity during a period of time.

After doing a BIG upgrade (like "swaret --upgrade -a"), did you do anything else?

You may want to:
Code:
find /etc -name "*.new"
This will give you an idea about configuration files that MAY have changed.

If you find a file with the ".new" extension, you need to ask yourself, "Have I manually updated that file?" If the answer is NO, then you should use a command like:
Code:
mv config_file.new config_file
If the answer is YES, you should use a command like:
Code:
diff config_file config_file.new
and use the results to help you edit your current config file.

This is a step that many people who use "automagic" upgrade tools like SWareT seem to forget. THis may be the cause of your problem. Also, try the old "Windows trick" of rebooting.
