[TAG] lpr works for user not root in Basiclinux 2.1

To dial I needed to chmod +s eznet, which lets eznet use pppd, which is
not on the path for user and does not need to be suid or executable by
user. So I am dialed as user on all three computers now.
rxvt works for user in Basiclinux 3.40, where it is compiled not to need
libXPM or lib-ldlinux just libX11 and libc.so.5
In BL2.1 (libc6) it cannot open pseudo-tty. rxvt -h lists XPM and utmp.
I read something about pseudoterminals and registering users in
/var/log/utmp (which of course we do not have). Perhaps if compiled
without the utmp stuff it would work without a utmp file in BL2.1.
I have switched to xterm, which needs a long list of libraries but not
My remaining problem is that ssh is working on one computer (with a
standard hardware modem) but not on the two with internal lucent modems
(where pppd for some reason is accessing ttyS1 and also ttyLT0).
Host key verification failed if I ssh without the login.
ssh keesan at xxxx
Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).
Same permissions on ssh and on the .ssh files in both computers.
Same problem whether or not I copy over known_hosts from /root/.ssh .
ssh -v keesan at xxxx generates a long message ending in
debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_INIT_REPLY
Host key verification failed.
First it received one expected string but not another one.
ssh -v keesan at xxx > ssh.log saves a zero-length file.
I am happy dialing as user and ssh'ing as root, and my friends are
unlikely to ssh at all, but I would like to understand what is going on
with ssh. This continues to be educational.
Someone did once send out a generic mail to previous question-askers
asking for more questions. This might be more than you asked for.
