Description Stuart Shelton 2009-03-12 16:33:59 UTC
... the ChangeLog for this ebuild includes:

  09 Mar 2009; Robin H. Johnson <>
  Added my own unofficial port of the HPN patch, because performance sucks
  without it.

... which I'm not suggesting is the cause of the problem, but it caught my interest ;)

OpenSSH has always been completely stable on IRIX, except after upgrading yesterday I've had at least 8 segfaults so far today.

Are any other exotic/prefix arches experiencing instability with the latest build?
Comment 1 Stuart Shelton 2009-03-12 16:35:51 UTC
(My USE flags for this build are "X hpn".  I've not tried it without "hpn" yet.  Let me give that a try and I'll report back)

This version already got p.masked because of problems with the HPN patch:

# Robin H. Johnson <> (11 Mar 2009)
# HPN patch contains some breakages with port forwarding.

Please downgrade to openssh-5.2_p1-r1
