I've seen this issue on a couple of gentoo machines but couldn't find any advice
in the gentoo forums, so I'm posting the solution.

After upgrading or installing ssh I wasn't able to login via ssh. A look at the logs
revealed:

Code:
Dec  8 08:14:01 [sshd] Server listening on :: port 22.
Dec  8 08:14:01 [sshd] error: Bind to port 22 on 0.0.0.0 failed: Address already in use.


A google search brought me to this post:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-security-4/logwatch-reports-sshd-killed-failed-to-bind-0.0.0.0-port-22-352499/

Which says to do something like this:
Code:
vim /etc/ssh/sshd_config

and change this:
Code:
#ListenAddress 0.0.0.0

to this:
Code:
ListenAddress 0.0.0.0


Hope this helps anyone facing the same issue.

Cheers,
