SSH - ssh-keygen permission denied


#1

Hello, people!

While trying to generate an SSH key, i got this error:

Saving key "/home/spartan/.ssh/id_rsa" failed: Permission denied

This is a 1-week old install, nothing out of the ordinary.

Tried chmod-ing the folder ( u+xr,go-rwx ) and the error persists. Any ideas where i should look to fix this?

Thanks
