Ubuntu 12.04 ships with OpenSSH-5.9p1. This version again does not

We would like to have the LDAP Public Keys patch incorporated, as well as the SFTP File Control patch

To do this:


  • cd /usr/src
  • apt-get source openssh && cd openssh-5.



  • 9p1
  • patch < ~/sftp.patch
  • apt-source --commit
  • patch < ~/lpk.patch
  • apt-source --commit
  • dpkg-buildpackage
The LPK patch is derived from Gentoo. The SFTP file control patch is the one for 5.4p1.
Both had to be slightly changed so they could be applied (order: sftp,lpk).
