I have a codebase hosted in GitHub.
I have 2 ubuntu machines (both on 10.04) that I develop on. On these machines I had no trouble generating my keypairs as per GitHub's instructions. Using the command
ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "emailaddress"
My server runs Debian Lenny.
Now I was planning to do a clone/pull from my server to keep that updated. Since that always worked fine for me when using SVN I figured I could do the same with git.
When trying to generate an ssh keypair however, I was presented with the problem that it insists on making an ssh2 keypair. Additionally, the -C command is invalid as well.
ssh-key --help yields a different output on my server than Ubuntu.
So, I'm kind of lost here. There are different applications named ssh-keygen at play here?
Disclaimer: I might be forgetting to check some really basic stuff but together with a friend we're trying to manage the hurdles we face on the fly. We're neither really hardcore linux people :)
