Pardon me if this is a dumb question and I won't guarantee I didn't do
something wrong, but I installed OpenSSH 3.3 on both an OpenBSD 3.1 and 3.0
system. On the 3.1 system I see the [priv] but I don't on the 3.0.
I may have misinterpreted the instructions for installing on 3.0, but I
untarred the source, patched it with the openbsd31_3.3.patch, built it,
installed it, created the sshd user and /var/empty, then restarted sshd.
"sshd -t" gives me no errors and a "ssh -v" from another machine confirms
I'm getting 3.3 on the server.
I noticed that the patch changes the sshd user to nobody in the ssh.h header
file and nobody has /nonexistent as it's home directory. I tried changing
it to /var/empty and restarting sshd -- it didn't change anything I could
see. I changed it back to /nonexistent and then created that directory --
it didn't help either. I checked to see if /etc/sshd_config was copied:
grep -i priv /etc/sshd_config
These are both Sparc machines, if that matters. They are slow machines, and
if I do repeated ps commands while connecting I can see a "sshd: [net]
(sshd)" process running as nobody when the connection is setup on the 3.0
Is there something special about ps under 3.0 that wouldn't show the [priv]
or did I do something wrong somewhere?
