I followed the instructions on sourceforge, and I can indeed do a "cvs
log fred.c" and
get what I want. However, there are two problems:
1. It always asks for a passphrase, even though I didn't enter a
enter makes it go away and let me have my data, but I want this
2. I can't have an administrator command prompt when I do this.
My CVS_RSH is set to ssh
I tried a variety of things after searching on the internet.
As per sourceforge instructions, I sent them my id_dsa.pub
I tried copying this file to both authorized_keys and
authorized_keys2, and that had no effect.
I tried replacing my old identity file from another system with my
id_dsa, but that had no effect.
I tried starting "ssh-agent cvs" (which prints cvs info) and then "ssh-
add", which comes back with:
"Could not open a connection to your authentication agent".
I didn't have this problem on my (very, very) old PC. However, when I
tried copying the .ssh files
from my old PC to my new laptop, I couldn't use CVS to access
sourceforge (it asked for a
password which I didn't remember), which is why I am repeating the
Fear of getting ssh working again was one of the major things holding
me back from upgrading
any software for many years. I was right to be fearful, but I've run
out of rope now that my old
PC is physically dying (rebooting after a short time, BIOS getting
connection rarely working). Fear of gcc (actually newlib) not doing
C89 compiles was another
thing, and that fear also turned out to be well founded - bugs already
reported to newlib.
