Product: Gentoo Linux Reporter: W. Trevor King <wking>
Component: Current packagesAssignee: Sysadmin Bugs <sysadmin>
Severity: normal CC: graaff, into-the-trash-it-goes, jlec, sam
Priority: Normal Keywords: PATCH
Version: unspecified

OS: Linux

Runtime testing required: ---
Attachments: Untested patch for handling missing ECDSA functionality.

Description W. Trevor King 2013-12-29 04:20:02 UTC
On a fresh amd64 stage3:

  # emerge -v1 net-analyzer/munin
  # emerge --config net-analyzer/munin
  Generating public/private rsa key pair.
  unknown key type ecdsa

Ideally the munin config should catch the failure and fall back to just RSA keys.  See #390937, #402441, and #488814 for more about openssh[-bindist] not supporting ECDSA keys.

Thanks for the patch, I will take care of it.

The bindist USE flag has been gone for some time so this issues is now obsolete.
