Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).
The patch will crash SSH :|

without looking at the patch, I think this isn't the causer of the patch at all.

ciao, Marc

Well it is, i booted on the old kernel and SSH worked perfect and then on the new kernel with the patch i cant SSH, i dont even
get an password prompt. I tried to ssh to more than one host aswell, i also removed the key in .known_hosts but it still doesnt work.

Are you claiming that the unpatched 2.6 kernel works and the patched didn't? Or that 2.6 doesn't work right in general on your system because of configuration issues? Unless the same 2.6 kernel works without the patch how can you even tell what is failing?

Well im sorry if i caused some mess ;), but it actually seems that the patch worked. I have no idea what when wrong the first time but
after further testing it worked. I would say that the problem was behind the keyboard and not in the patch.

Thanx for all your replies and that you tried to help but it seems that the patch is fine ;)
