- Subject: openssh question
When I install openssh 5.1-10 from source and run the cygwin post install everything works fine. But if i install to a directory then run cygwin post install and tar the contents of the folder with the following tar cvjfT my-openssh-5.1.-10.tar.bz2 - (found in /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/openssh.README) then take that archive to another machine unpack the archive with tar --owner= accountname --overwrite -xvpf my-openssh-5.1-10.tar.bz2. When i try to start the service or manually run sshd -D it complains about the permissions on /var/empty (owned by SYSTEM).....i verified on the working machine(from source) all permissions on folders and files. They are the same. I tried setting acl with setfacl and chown to SYSTEM and the the user(admin account), again they are the exact same permissions. But still the same result. I have tried the same process several times. Anyone have any ideas what is going wrong?
