I'm currently encountering issues with some tools that connect via SSH to a remote machine (Eclipse's remote deployment) to deploy files automatically. Around 90% of the time, when I initiate the session, the connection to the remote machine is immediately killed and I have to retry. I believe that I have traced the issue back to this bug report, where the OP explains that the issue is caused by something called
ConsoleKit. They then say that (emphasis mine):
The same script works fine if sshd is compiled without consolekit.patch
What does this mean, and how do I go about doing it? I have tried using versions of OpenSSH (
sshd on the server) from as far back as v5.0 in hopes that this faulty code won't be included, but it still has this issue. So, I'm hoping that I can compile it myself without including this patch to figure out what's going on.
I don't see any aptly-named patch files or build configuration options, so I'm really not sure where to begin.
