Hello all,

I have a problem as the title describes, I cannot run SSH at startup.
I've ran this command to add it at to the default runlevel

Quote:

rc-update add sshd default
* service sshd added to runlevel default


It seemed to work, but when I start my PC no ssh, and I have to run it manually.
Quote:

/etc/init.d/sshd start
* Use of the opts variable is deprecated and will be
* removed in the future.
* Please use extra_commands, extra_started_commands or extra_stopped_commands.
* Starting sshd ...


Now all it's okay. When the PC boots I only see the warnings part. No Starting sshd.

Any help on this.

Thanx,
Dan.

PoisonRO,

You have three network interfaces,
Code:
             net.eth0 |                                                     
               net.lo | boot                                                 
             net.ppp0 |                                                     
I'm not sure of net.ppp0 counts for this or not, as it needs another interface to be working firts.

By default, Gentoo considers the network service to be running only if all network interfaces are up.
IF the network server is not considered running, thinks that depend upon it cannot start - including ssh.

Look at the file /etc/rc.conf, near the top you will find
Code:
# Do we allow any started service in the runlevel to satisfy the dependency
# or do we want all of them regardless of state? For example, if net.eth0
# and net.eth1 are in the default runlevel then with rc_depend_strict="NO"
# both will be started, but services that depend on 'net' will work if either
# one comes up. With rc_depend_strict="YES" we would require them both to
# come up.
#rc_depend_strict="YES"
Is that hint enough ?

Thanx, guys. It worked. At first I've added net.eth0 only and it did not work. After that i've deleted net.ppp0 and voila. SSH at boot.
I did not need ppp0 anyway :lol:

Cheers,
Dan.

On boot, sshd appears to start - but there is no process, and no sshd.pid in /var/run. It does claim to be already started when I try /etc/init.d/sshd start, and gives a missing /var/run/sshd.pid error when I run /etc/init.d/sshd stop.

/usr/sbin/sshd -d

works and I can login remotely.

I do not have a net.ppp0 script to delete - I just have net.eth0 and net.lo both of which appear to work. However, I have a spurious device called sit0 when I run ifconfig, for which I cannot find an init.d file.

I have also run as

/usr/sbin/sshd -e -D

which logs my logins succesfully. But - /etc/init.d/ssh start still pretends to work but doesn't.

However, when I run with

/usr/sbin/sshd -e

I get daemon failed: No such device

The issue is a bad /dev/null.

ls -l reveals /dev/null to be a regular file.

# rm /dev/null
# mknod /dev/null c 1 3

will fix the problem. Thanks to keex on Linuxquestions.org - 2 years ago.
