I recently clean installed a small server by installing Kubuntu 11.10 32-bit. Before this change, the computer had a working git server that was able to interact ok with EGit on a separate computers.

After the OS clean, the same configuration as before was done using tutorials for gitolite.

The repository is back to working ok when used from the command line. But Eclipse is not able to fetch a project with the following complain:

"Cannot get remote repository refs
ssh://gitolite@host:22 the authenticity of host '' can't be established. RSA key fingerprint is xx.xx.xx... Are you sure you want to continue connection."

However, the dialog does not have an option to accept the fingerprint. I did the process to accept the fingerprint by first login in from the shell. However, the error keeps popping up.

I eliminated every host key from known_hosts and loggued back int the server so that I would only have the needed host key. But looking at the list of hosts keys from Windows->Peferences->General->Network Connections->SSH2 Known hosts tab, the key does not show up.

So, I looked at the type of key. The file says it is a ecdsa-sha2-nistp256. The previous OS Ubuntu 11.04 had mostly ssh-rsa host keys.

How do I get this to work ?

Thanks for any help

I have exactly the same problem. Server and client running an up to date gentoo installation and an up to date Eclipse Indigo.
