Subject: [gentoo-user] ssh trouble
Yesterday's update to ssh (openssh-5.1_p1-r1) is giving me trouble.
The client is allan. The server is ajglap.
From the client (gnome-terminal) I can run ssh as follows
gottlieb@allan ~ $ ssh ajglap
Last login: Tue Oct 28 11:50:02 EDT 2008 from allan on ssh
Last login: Tue Oct 28 11:54:33 2008 from allan
xhost: unable to open display ""
gottlieb@ajglap ~ $
adding a -Y gives the same output
But I can't run other server programs from the client. The following
used to start emacs on the server displaying a new X11 window on the
gottlieb@allan ~ $ ssh -Y ajglap emacs
emacs: standard input is not a tty
gottlieb@allan ~ $
removing the -Y gives the same output
I went to the server and created ~/.ssh/config with contents
But this didn't help (I also tried the risky ForwardX11).
I am planning to downgrade, but wanted to ask here first if I have just
misconfigured something (bugs.gentoo.org didn't seem to have anything
Is "X11Forwarding yes" set in the sshd_config on ajglap?
