Re: ssh_get_user_home_dir (misc.c)


Please be careful with the layout of your email, the last one was very
hard to read.
The folders are not expected to contain anything, but at least
ssh_is_server_known() will report an error if the known hosts file is
missing. ssh_write_knownhosts() will create the file if it doesn't exist.

In case you are writing a system app, you can safely set the home
directory to a directory like /var/empty and control the known_hosts
file location with ssh_options_set.
