Subject: [gentoo-user] ssh "Failed to add the host to the list of known hosts"
Date: Tue, 22 May 2007 19:26:10
1 For some reason, my SSH (openssh-4.5_p1-r1) refuses to remember any
2 hosts I connect to, and even if I keep connecting to the same machine
3 over and over, it still wants me to OK the RSA fingerprint manually.
5 Here's the verbose output when I try to connect to a known machine:
7 ssh -v
8 OpenSSH_4.5p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8d 28 Sep 2006

27 The authenticity of host ' (' can't be
28 established.
29 RSA key fingerprint is (SOME RSA KEY GOES HERE)
30 Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
32 Failed to add the host to the list of known hosts
33 (/home/myuser/.ssh/known_hosts).

47 debug1: Next authentication method: keyboard-interactive
48 debug1: Authentications that can continue:
49 publickey,password,keyboard-interactive
50 debug1: Next authentication method: password
52 It would not create any files under my /home/myuser/.ssh/ directory.
53 When I tried to create a file there manually, it said permission
54 denied.
56 Do I need to be added to some group to fix these permissions?
