I'm using an schroot to do some builds of deployment packages, and there's a lot of to and fro between the host and the schroot environments. Within the schroot the ssh-agent doesn't seem to be accessible so every time an ssh key is needed I get asked to enter a password.
As far as I can tell from this http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=574723 the ssh-agent should be working.
I've tried to set things like
SSH_AGENT_PID, but although the file can be seen within the chroot ssh still asks for the key passphrase.
I've also tried to add in the ssh mounting contrib script to my setup.d, but again, it still asks for the passphrase:
sudo cp /usr/share/doc/schroot/contrib/setup.d/10mount-ssh /etc/schroot/setup.d/ sudo chmod +x /etc/schroot/setup.d/10mount-ssh
I've also tried to rename the
10mount-ssh script to
11mount-ssh so I know it'll happen after the
10mount script runs, but it's still asking.
I'm on raring so have a pretty current version of schroot.
