Subject: [gentoo-alpha] Missing GID/UID for sshd
Date: Fri, 30 Jul 2004 03:19:39
Tried starting sshd to remotely install Gentoo on my AlphaStation.
sshd yells at me for not having privileged group
It generates the keys, but stops with:
"Privilege separation user sshd does not exist"

I groupadd'ed an useradd'ed sshd with GID=65 and UID=71 from my SuSE 
~> cat /etc/group|grep sshd
~> cat /etc/passwd|grep sshd
sshd:x:71:65:SSH daemon:/var/lib/sshd:/bin/false

Maybe something to correct in the Stage1 tarball for Alpha
