The F17 LXDE spin has something incorrectly set up. This is because the
LiveCD does not get the ssh-agent started upon logging in. To replicate
the problem, please do the following:
boot into the LiveCD.
open a terminal window and type:
We will get an error message:
Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.
Only the LXDE spin has this problem: all other F17 spins are fine which
leads me to suspect that the issue is with one of the components that
make up LXDE.
Not sure under what component the bug report should be filed. This is
not an openssh issue.
Many thanks and best wishes,
