I'm trying to generate host keys to run sshd (OpenSSH). ssh-keygen seems to run
okay but when I try to start sshd, I get the following;

error: Could not load host key: /etc/ssh/ssh_host_key: Bad file descriptor
Disabling protocol version 1
error: Could not load DSA host key: /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key
Disabling protocol version 2
sshd: no hostkeys available -- exiting.
sshd: no hostkeys available -- exiting.

Anyone any bright ideas? I have it working on another box but it's key were
generated automatically. I've tried the manual pages but they seem to indicate
it all shold just work.

Neil.
