I recently got the Jenkins appliance running on Turnkey Hub. I tried connecting to a private git repository (I added my ssh key to the home directory of tomcat6 - which Jenkins runs under, added it to Jenkins and installed the ssh plugin, but so far I still haven't been able to connect). I even copied my known_hosts file from my system over to Jenkins, but I still keep getting the same error.
I changed the shell for the tomcat user to sh (it used to be /usr/false), and running
$ ssh -vT firstname.lastname@example.org OpenSSH_5.5p1 Debian-6+squeeze2, OpenSSL 0.9.8o 01 Jun 2010 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: Applying options for * debug1: Applying options for bitbucket.org debug1: Connecting to bitbucket.org [188.8.131.52] port 22. debug1: Connection established. debug1: identity file /usr/share/tomcat6/.ssh/id_rsa type -1 debug1: identity file /usr/share/tomcat6/.ssh/id_rsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /usr/share/tomcat6/.ssh/id_dsa type -1 debug1: identity file /usr/share/tomcat6/.ssh/id_dsa-cert type -1 debug1: Remote protocol version 2.0, remote software version OpenSSH_5.3 debug1: match: OpenSSH_5.3 pat OpenSSH* debug1: Enabling compatibility mode for protocol 2.0 debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.5p1 Debian-6+squeeze2 debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT received debug1: kex: server->client aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: kex: client->server aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REQUEST(1024<1024<8192) sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_GROUP debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_INIT sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REPLY Failed to add the host to the list of known hosts (/usr/share/tomcat6/.ssh/known_hosts). debug1: ssh_rsa_verify: signature correct debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS received debug1: Roaming not allowed by server debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_REQUEST sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_ACCEPT received debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Trying private key: /usr/share/tomcat6/.ssh/id_rsa debug1: Trying private key: /usr/share/tomcat6/.ssh/id_dsa debug1: No more authentication methods to try.

I'm at my wits end at the moment, and am considering either getting tomcat to run as root or making my repo public. What can I do to get this working?
