Description Tim Waugh 2002-03-22 08:54:25 EST
Description of Problem:
My ssh-agent no longer gets run.  I had modified .Xclients so that it looked like:


# Created by Red Hat Desktop Switcher

if [ -e "$HOME/.Xclients-$HOSTNAME$DISPLAY" ]; then
    exec $HOME/.Xclients-$HOSTNAME$DISPLAY
    exec ssh-agent $HOME/.Xclients-default

But ssh-agent didn't get run.  I also tried modifying .Xclients-default, but
with the same result.  

I am logging in with KDM with 'default' session type.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Modify .Xclients
2. Log in.
3. Try 'ssh-add' in a terminal

Actual Results:
Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.

Expected Results:
Should be prompted for a pass phrase.

Additional Information:
Worked before upgrade from Enigma.
