Usually I use the gpg-agent to manage my ssh keys. But now it doesn't work
A few days ago I lost homedir and everything got lost. I rebuild the gnupg
configuration to use the agent and the has ssh support enabled. I generated a
new ssh key and added it to the agent via ssh-add.
Now every time I try to connect via ssh the pinentry window pops up and asks
for a password to unlock the key. But pinentry always says the password is
wrong and I keep getting the error message "Agent admitted failure to sign
using the key.".
The passwords are enter correctly and the ssh public key was added to
authorized_keys. I tried generating new ssh keys but the problem is always the
Anyone any ideas?
