I’ve managed to make some good progress in getting OpenSSH to build under BeOS BONE. It builds everything though some of the “fixes” aren’t yet real but simple no-ops, The lack of AF_UNIX support is a problem that stops us from using some of the functionality, but I suspect that we can live without those pieces. sshd works and accepts connections, but fails to exit when requested – a bug I’m still trying to track down.

Hopefully in a few days I’ll have found that bug and will make a patch available. I’ve been wondering about adding a subversion repository for patches to packages as it would allow people to work together on getting them improved. Of course that does imply that people would work together 🙂
