Re: Gnome utility for remembering ssh passwords?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I have ssh-agent running as soon as I log in, and it seems to be
referenced in /etc/X11/xinit/Xsession, which as far as I know is the
script started by gdm to start an X session

As far as I know, I didn't need to do anything to make ssh-agent run 

Well, I just sent a message to the list regarding a related problem,
pam_ssh which used to be able to unlock your ssh keys automatically if
their passphrase was identical to your system password, but that doesn't
seem to work any more.
