ssh-agent and ssh-add not talking?
I recently upgraded from 2.1 where a compile-from-source install of Xfree86
4.0.1 was working fine to 2.2. I used ssh-agent and ssh-add to store my
ssh keys for easy logging into remote hosts. However, upon upgrading to
deb 2.2 I couldn't get X started with the old xinitrc (would startup, blink
the screen, then die without a warning of any kind) So, a simple xinitrc
with just the name of my window manager did the trick. Now, however, when
I type ssh-add (after starting ssh-agent), it complains that it "could not
open a connection to your authentication agent".
I don't suppose any one has any idea what has happened? I never removed
the deb package install of xfree3.3.6 so these were replaced in the deb 2.2
upgrade, I just don't know what exactly it was that was replaced to cause
any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
