Update to 0.89 problem

Postby kj6epl » Sat May 23, 2015 11:49 pm

Hi folks,

I was following the http://www.rootwink.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4 tutorial on upgrading, and I've become stuck on step #6. After rebooting into the updater, I lost SSH access, despite copying and pasting all the commands. On my desktop, I get this error:

Code: Select all

Drew@BFG9000 ~
$ ssh root@
Could not create directory '/home/Drew/.ssh'.
The authenticity of host ' (' can't be established.
ECDSA key fingerprint is [xx:xx:xx:...:xx].
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Failed to add the host to the list of known hosts (/home/Drew/.ssh/known_hosts).
Permission denied (publickey).

When I try on a different SSH client, I get "Your host doesn't support 'password' or 'keyboard-interactive' authentication.

How do I fix this? Thanks.

To fix your ssh issue, you need to edit the /home/Drew/.ssh/known_hosts file and remove the line for the host, or use the local command:

Code: Select all

ssh-keygen -f "/home/Drew/.ssh/known_hosts" -R

This may fail for permission errors, if so, correct your ownership and permissions of your .ssh directory and the .ssh/known_hosts and try to remove it again.

To connect to the box you should use the private key file corresponding to the public key in /root/.ssh/authorized_keys you created when you rooted the winkhub. The command should look like the following where <privateKeyFile> is the local ssh private key file.

Code: Select all

Drew@BFG8000 ~
$ ssh -i <privateKeyFile> root@

If you used the actual command {b]as listed[/b] on viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4 then you can get the private key from viewtopic.php?f=8&t=8 I believe.

Failing all of that, you need to look at going to the process of rooting it again
