Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS lucid (ubuntu server version)

after I reboot:

ps aux|grep agent

there is no ssh-agent. why ?

But I still can login my another server without answer password. (Since using public key in ~/.ssh/id_rsa )

And also:

$ssh-add -L

Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.


If I manually execute ssh-agent zsh, then every thing ok .
