I am trying to use the sshpass command to automate installation of software on remote systems. It was installed using sudo apt-get install sshpass

Trying on my PC, using sshpass -e to provide a non-interactive password to the ssh command, this seems to work fine:

$ SSHPASS=mypwd sshpass -e ssh -l myuser myhost

On the ARM based system, running Ubuntu 11.10, this command get stuck whenever I try to run ssh. Note that it works just fine for "simple" commands like echo and even ping.

Is there a known problem with sshpass on ARM (specifically, w/ 11.10)?
