    Problems with SSH


    Hello all.

    I recently installed Mandrake 10, and I want to use it as a server. I downloaded SSH-2.0.9, and I started to install it. I did:
    tar xvzf ssh-2.0.9.tar.gz #
    cd ssh-2.0.9
    ./configure
    su
    make

    When I inputted "make", it did the following:
    [root@localhost ssh-2.0.9]# make
    make all-recursive

    What should I do about those errors ? Should my SSH work even with these errors ?
    Also, I installed my Mandrake only with 2 CD:s, should the absence of third CD affect my linux majorly ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    why don't you want to use the ssh server already included with the distro?
    It's an easy rpm install and you'll get automaticaly security update if any from Mandrake...

    I installed my MDK10 with only 2 CD:s, and I can't find SSH anywhere, so I think it is in the third CD.

    I'm not sure what version of ssh you are trying to install, but I would suggest OpenSSH. OpenSSH is up to version 3.9 and has RPMs on their ftp here.

    On Mandrake 10.0, openssh is on the 1st CD.
    Just open a terminal console and type this :

    $ su -
    Password:<Enter your root password>
    # urpmi openssh-server
    if requested, type Y to accept depencies...

    After install :
    # chkconfig --add sshd
    # service sshd start

    (chkconfig --add is to tell the service to start automaticaly at next boot)
