Another new feature in Amahi 7 - manage public key

Postby cpg » Sun Mar 10, 2013 7:45 pm

Hello, we have updated the repos (both 32 and 64 bits) with bits that contain a couple of new advanced-user features: the ability for users to manage a public key automatically and admin==sudo.

You can see a picture here on how users can add a public key:

In addition there is another feature whereby if a user is made admin, the user will have sudo capabilities automatically at the linux level.

We need to test the corner cases, like the state when a new install is done, so if you can report issues with any of these two features here, it will be great.

Hello, we did a few improvements to the UI for users and shares and released a new version of the RPMs, ready for your testing!

Great :)

But I myself was not able to define more than one public keys.

At Amahi Home Server > Users > Authentication shows all keys correctly. But inside /home/amahi/.ssh/authorized_keys there is just one key :(

BTW:
[administrator@localhost TMP]$ ssh-keygen -t ecdsa -b 521 -C "$(whoami)@$(hostname)-$(date -I)"
unknown key type ecdsa

Why is this not possible in F18?

ok, this is a bug. i did not think anyone would want more than one key this quickly! :roll:

i think this should be fixed now. the latest platform released to the repos (both 32 and 64 bit) should have a fix. updating to it should work, no need to reinstall.

let us know how it goes!

Uuups... Noone told me I have to use at most one key... :lol:

Yep, everthing is fine. Rights/Owner are fine, changing keys works fine. Emptying Authentication could lead to a deletion of authorized_keys. However there should be an autostart of a ssh-service. Otherwise one has to start the sshd manually.

Btw: what about a nice welcome message for ssh logins
