Kodi Leia v18 SFTP and NFS addon auto-enable, when media source exist during upgrade
#36
Sorry guys, I hadn't subscribed to email notifications and just saw your messages.

Please do not delete the whole .ssh folder - this is where your key pairs live;-)
just the file "known_hosts" should get wiped out: it will get recreated for each of your hosts with a better encryption algorithm on the next connection.
In my case "ecdsa-sha2-nistp256" was upgraded to "ssh-ed25519" - which is apparently the golden standard as of 2019.

I have unfortunately no idea what is going on with your Mac, but it could be that you're missing the Keychain configuration step described here ("Notes for macOS User"): https://medium.com/risan/upgrade-your-ss...e8d60d3c54

And even more unfortunately, it seems that even when it's working, accessing the library via ssh sucks big time when it comes to performance.
My Vero4k (OSMC) is overheating happily when rescaning the shares, or sometimes just playing music, and my old wetek/librelec box doesn't fare much better. In summary: So far the upgrade to Kodi18 was just a pain. Wrecking ssh/sftp support is just ruining the user experience (I have kids and they certainly didn't use such kind words).

All in all, it would have been cleaner from a user experience perspective to discontinue officially the feature rather than leaving it in a half broken state like it is right now (as a linux old timer, I can still not understand how can anyone NOT use ssh/sftp and key pair authentication to access files remotely but that's probably just me...).
