ide4 CVS extssh access bug

Postby Dan Sperka » Tue Jun 26, 2007 4:59 pm

Hi -

I've been having this problem for some time now, wondering if there is a
workaround. Installing the new version of eclipse (4.0.1) didn't do the
trick. We're using qnx momentics 6.3.2

I use a remote CVS server which requires ssh access. In eclipse that's
"extssh" access. [ I have used this cvs server for some time with
eclipse on other platforms, and I have used it from the command line
within QNX. I have the third party ssh/openssh package installed. ]

Whenever eclipse needs to access the repository I get a dialog:

Error fetching children of "HEAD"

I've seen various posts on the web regarding this, but none have pointed
me to a solution on QNX. Has anyone found a solution?

OK - I solved my own problem by generating a DSA key and moving the
public key to the CVS host machine. This also eliminates the need for a
password. Not a good solution if you don't have access/rights to do this
on the target CVS host, but it works for me.

Normally, someone that doesn't have access to a shell or doesn't have a

write access to the his homedir in the server use something like an
anonymous access, which is supposed to work without public-key...
