[Bioc-devel] Git permission denied (publickey)

Hi Nitesh,

Thanks for the quick reply -- after reading through the exchanges on the list over the past week, I realized that my problem was related to the fact that my SSH keys were named github_rsa and github_rsa.pub (rather than id_rsa and id_rsa.pub). I added a config file (as suggested by the FAQ #15 at http://master.bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/faq/) in ~/.ssh/ with the following text:

host git.bioconductor.org
    HostName git.bioconductor.org
    IdentityFile ~/.ssh/github_rsa
    User git

And now everything seems to be working just fine.

Thanks again,

Your key is in the system. 

Please send a list of commands you are trying along with the result.

Also send the output for
