FWIW OpenSSH works fine on the 770 (both client and server).

Bug in dropbear's postinst script.  Find the line that uses == inside [ ]
and replace it with =.  You can do that in
/var/lib/dpkg/info/dropbear-client.postinst, I think, but it would be
better to fix the package itself.

Whoa, Segmentation fault?  Where did that one come from?

The BeOS takes the best features from the major operating systems. It's got
the power and flexibility of Unix, the interface and ease of use of the MacOS,
and Minesweeper from Windows.
