[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] ssh key failure

hey all -

so i have dropkey everything and im attempting to do key generation so
i can ssh from my 770 into my laptop without a password prompt.

i'm root...
i do
ssh-keygen -t rsa -f /root/.ssh/id_rsa

it generates and does its thing. i copy the public key output and save
it as id_rsa.pub. i then scp this to my laptop's .ssh authorized keys
file. after that i try:

Nokia770-51:~/.ssh# scp id_rsa.pub ME at LAPTOP:~/.ssh/authorized_keys2
WARNING: Ignoring unknown argument '-x'
WARNING: Ignoring unknown argument '-oForwardAgent no'
WARNING: Ignoring unknown argument '-oClearAllForwardings yes'
Failed loading keyfile '/root/.ssh/id_dsa'

so not only does it still prompt me, i have some sort of failure. i
believe all my permissions are set correctly, but perhaps i'm
mistaken. anyone have a suggestion?

thankee! christine
