Mandriva: Updated openssh-askpass-qt package fixes exit Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake The QT openssh password asking dialog, provided by openssh-askpass-qt package, would always exit with successful status (0), even when the user did not press the Ok button. This would, at least, make the openssh client always allow sharing a connection when ControlMaster option was set to ask. This update fixes the issue.
