It appears you have fixed it!

Can the dependency on /dev/null be detected automatically by jailkit or
is it OS dependent and must also be discovered by hand?

What are the implications? Is this SuSE (in my case openSUSE 10.2)
specific? It seems SuSE requires jk_init.ini's sftp section to be
changed to look like this:

comment = ssh secure ftp
executables = /usr/lib/ssh/sftp-server
includesections = netbasics, uidbasics
devices = /dev/urandom, /dev/null

And of course SuSE uses the alternative init.d script you provide in
extra/ in the 2.3 jailkit distribution.

jk_init.ini should be examined to see if other areas need changes.

I can't say if this issue is SuSE specific or more an artifact of the
ssh package (or SuSE packaging of ssh).

According to http://benjiweber.co.uk:8080/webpin/ there is no SuSE
package for jailkit. Such package could incorporate the above changes.
SuSE is after all the 2nd or 3rd most popular linux according to
distrowatch. However, I've never built a package.

Failing that, if this mailing list were archived and then Google
searchable (after scrubbing out emails) other people could learn from
our experience. I've done a lot of Googling lately and there's less
information about chroot jails than I anticipated.

Olivier, thank you.
