FreeBSD xxx.xxx.xxx 6.2-STABLE FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #1: Thu Jun 14 01:18:05 PDT 2007 yuri at xxx.xxx.xxx:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386
I recently upgraded from 6.2-STABLE from few months ago to the current one. Also removed old and reinstalled again all packages.
And X11 forwarding stopped working.
After troubleshooting I figured out that with debug client prints the message:
debug1: Remote: No xauth program; cannot forward with spoofing.
Turns out that sshd is looking for xauth in /usr/X11R6/bin and now all Xorg stuff goes into /usr/local/.
(cd /usr/X11R6/bin && ln -s /usr/local/bin/xauth)
But it should work by itself.
