Description Diego Búrigo Zacarão 2007-02-15 17:37:50 UTC
Description of problem:

In session "2.1. Making an SSH Key" just says to make the following command
"chmod 700 ~/.ssh" to take the appropriate permission on the key and .ssh
directory. But sometimes is necessary to run another command to take appropriate
permission on the key.
The command is: "chmod 600 ~/.ssh/id*"
***So it could be put in the guide.***

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Revision 0.3.7

How reproducible:

In my case just runnnig "chmod 700 ~/.ssh" was not enough to me.
I got the following message when trying to have access the CVS:

   [diego@Rasther FEDORA]# chmod 700 ~/.ssh
   [diego@Rasther FEDORA]# cvs -z9 co translate/
   Permissions 0666 for '/diego/.ssh/id_dsa' are too open.
   It is recommended that your private key files are NOT accessible by others.
   This private key will be ignored.
   bad permissions: ignore key: /diego/.ssh/id_dsa
   Enter passphrase for key '/diego/.ssh/id_dsa':

Each time I put my password the same message was displayed again. (3 times)

So I have had to run "chmod 600 ~/.ssh/id*" to fix the problem.

AFAICT, this only happens if you copy your key from another location without
setting the permissions properly.  When you create a brand new key as the
instructions say, the proper permissions are automatically applied (700 for
~/.ssh/ and 600 for ~/.ssh/id_dsa).  By the way, you actually don't need to
remove permissions for the public key; 644 is the appropriate permission for

Hi Manuel,  could you have a look and unjam this bug?  Thanks.

Comment 3 Noriko Mizumoto 2007-08-29 04:47:05 UTC

I just have completed splitting job of this guide.
Please cvs up, so that you can get updated fileS.
Now quick-start-guide/en_US/ directory contains multiple files based on chapter.
For this bug, you should be able to edit Accounts_And_Subscriptions.xml file.
There may be some people modifying the files, it would be better to send a memo
into fedora-trans-list/fedora-docs-list.

Once you update, could you also kindly make a comment at

Thank you so much!

I have created a patch for that file if it's interesting.
