SSHD Fails to start

Hi all gurus,

I'm using Solaris 8 Sparc platform. I downloaded all and installed all 7 packages(egd,openssl...) to install OpenSSH3.. as instructed from www.sunfreeware.com.
However when I run this command

#/usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen

to generate the private keys I received this error:

ld.so.1: /usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen: fatal: libc.so.1: version `SUNW_1.19' not found (required by file /usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen).

When I tried to start the sshd daemon I get this error:
ld.so.1: /usr/local/sbin/sshd: fatal: libsocket.so.1: version `SUNW_1.4' not found (required by file /usr/local/sbin/sshd)

Does anyone know what' s wrong?

Sounds like you downloaded a version compiled for a different release of the OS.

Chris is correct. The version that you downloaded is for some other version of Solaris. Why not just download the OpenSSL and OpenSSH sources and build your own? They aren't difficult to build and the result will match your OS version. The sources are available from:

http://www.openssl.org/
http://www.openssh.org/

the message definititely prints: "fatal: lib* ... not found"
This might indicate application-OS-version mismatch, but I assume that it is simply a wrong LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable setting.
PLease check as follows:

   ldd /usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen
   ldd /usr/local/sbin/sshd
   echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

I'm pretty shure that LD_LIBRARY_PATH does not contain a path to libc.so and libsocket.so, which are in /usr/lib, usually.

Hmm,

I downloaded the package from sunfreeware.com. I also downloaded other packages and it works fine. How can it be wrong...?

I have also exported my new LD_LIBRARY_PATH with /usr/lib, but it doesn't work too.

The other packages you downloaded may not require a specific OS release.  The version you should be picking up is the one at http://www.sunfreeware.com/programlistsparc8.html#openssh

Alternately, you can get the source from www.openssh.com and compile it yourself.

ddl76, at the moment it's not important which package works, and which does not. The program in question needs to be checked. Please follow my suggestion, especially ldd, and post the resukts.

I get this output for ssh-keygen:
 
libsocket.so.1 =>        /usr/local/lib/libsocket.so.1
        libnsl.so.1 =>   /usr/lib/libnsl.so.1
        libc.so.1 =>     /usr/lib/libc.so.1
        libc.so.1 (SUNW_1.19) =>         (version not found)
        libdl.so.1 =>    /usr/lib/libdl.so.1
        libmp.so.2 =>    /usr/lib/libmp.so.2

I get this output for sshd:
 libpam.so.1 =>   /usr/lib/libpam.so.1
        libpam.so.1 (SUNW_1.1) =>        (version not found)
        libdl.so.1 =>    /usr/lib/libdl.so.1
        libsocket.so.1 =>        /usr/local/lib/libsocket.so.1
        libsocket.so.1 (SUNW_1.4) =>     (version not found)
        libnsl.so.1 =>   /usr/lib/libnsl.so.1
        libc.so.1 =>     /usr/lib/libc.so.1
        libc.so.1 (SUNW_1.19) =>         (version not found)
        libmp.so.2 =>    /usr/lib/libmp.so.2

ldd's output tells you explicitely that there are some libs not installed, repectively not found via LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. See lines with: (version not found).

You need to install thes libraries corectly, or install a openssh packackes which matches your installed libs.
