I’ve been looking at replacing the Apple provided ssh-agent, while still starting it from Launchd, but all the solutions I’ve thus far saw was typically fixed with absolute path names.
The one thing that the Apple ssh-agent https://opensource.apple.com/source/OpenSSH/OpenSSH-220.220.4/openssh/ssh-agent.c.auto.html <https://opensource.apple.com/source/OpenSSH/OpenSSH-220.220.4/openssh/ssh-agent.c.auto.html> does, it to fetch the filedescriptors from launchd, and create sockets from that, instead of opening it’s own unix sockets, and if you use the $SSH_AUTH_SOCKET variable of that socket that launchd created and listened on before starting the ssh-agent, then ssh-agent fails as it can’t open the socket while launchd also has it open.
The related code inside the conditionals for __APPLE_LAUNCHD__ , and the l_flag variable (that is introduced with the -l option to tell it’s running under launchd
If it’s acceptable to provide the needed, I’ll start the process to patch/etc. against the latest and do the pull request,
(I’m surprised I haven’t yet found a SystemD related stuff doing the same in the code based to do the same)
