Well at first i had ~/.ssh/ i renamed it to since
i thought git will automatically provided the key  inside a file
named: id_dsa.*

since then i only get the question about a password.

before renaming the file i got first the passphrase, which i entered
then(correctly), and then it also asked for my password, and
eventually will give a permission denied.
