Doing ssh-keygen -e id_dsa_2048_a imposes carriage return
Posted on 2003-03-05
This seems to be an oddball problem which I cannot seem to find a solution for.
I'm currently running:
ssh: SSH Secure Shell 3.2.3 on i686-pc-linux-gnu
Linux hostname 2.4.18-14 #1 Wed Sep 4 13:35:50 EDT 2002 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux (Redhat 8.0 fresh install)
Problem is that after having created an ssh pub/private key and setting the passphrase, I'd like to change the passphrase.
I enter command "ssh-keygen -e id_dsa_2048_a" and enter my passphrase, but the system seems like it adds an additional carriage return! So I can't even answer the question "...edit key..." and therefore can't change my passphrase! Works on Solaris however.
Passphrase needed for key "2048-bit dsa, user@hostname, Wed Mar 052003 10:34:10 -0800".
Do you want to edit key "2048-bit dsa, user@hostname, Wed Mar 052003 10:34:10 -0800" (yes or no)?
