Bug: SSH agent admitted failure on big endian machines on Ubuntu
February 24, 2010 Leave a comment
I was trying to bypass the authentication on ssh and I receive the following message:
user@host:~$ ssh remote-host Agent admitted failure to sign using the key.
I found that it is a bug of Ubuntu on big endian machines. The turnaround that works for me was add the following lines to my .bashrc:
echo -e "\nexport SSH_AUTH_SOCK=0" >> .bashrc
