ssh-askpass error

I am getting an error with CVS. Does idea support ssh v2? I get the error:

ssh_askpass: exec(/usr/lib/misc/ssh-askpass): No such file or directory
Host key verification failed.

Does anyone know how to fix this? My environment is:
IDEA 4.0.3, build #1182, Linux kernel 2.4.25, openssh 3.8p1

Thanks,

Lloyd

Never mind, sorry, just solved it myself. I installed x11-ssh-askpass and things seem to be working, although pretty slowly.

My workaround was to generate a public/private key on my workstation and added it to my ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on our cvs server.

Thanks for the pointer,

For anyone coming across this 14 years later, I was running into a similar issue on Cent OS 7. This is what I was seeing in the Intellij logs:

ssh_askpass: exec(/usr/libexec/openssh/ssh-askpass): No such file or directory

Like Lloyd mentions, you need to install the missing pacakge. In the case the Cent OS 7:

yum install openssh-askpass

Once the package was installed, I started getting prompts to enter my SSH password.
