Gentoo ss and com_err blocking e2fsprogs

Monday, December 1st, 2008

Gentoo appears to have released a change before releasing the portage that can handle it. If you emerge world right now, you’ll probably get a block involving sys-fs/e2fsprogs, sys-libs/ss and sys-libs/com_err. You’ll see something like this:
[blocks B ] sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.0)
[blocks B ] sys-libs/ss (is blocking sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.0)
[blocks B ] sys-libs/com_err (is blocking sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.0)


OpenSSH 4.6 (and higher) problem with LDAP

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

At work we upgraded some of our server a while ago and ran into a problem when upgrading from OpenSSH 4.5 to 4.6. It just stopped working. We use LDAP authentication and It would log an error “‘user’ is not in ‘sshgroup'”.

“id user” would confirm that they were indeed in sshgroup, and interestingly enough, adding them to a local group “sshgroup” would not help either.
