Ssh asking for password?

I’ve been trying to set up ssh logins to github for a while now.

I can ssh from my laptop to this box and vice versa with no passwords being requested. I’m running ssh-agent and have added the only identity on this system to it, as well as have added the .pub output to the SSH/GPG keys in my account info. Still, it asks for a password … I’ve created and recreated ssh keys… still asks for a password.

What gives, guys?

ssh -T git@github.com

@breakone9r, could it be permissions related to you client machine setup to your ssh keys folder.
If your home folder and authorized_keys file is is encrypted then you may not be readable before you login.

Not running any disk/file encryption on either system. System 1’s ~/.ssh/* is plain text files on an unencrypted zfs filesystem, and system 2 is the same, on an unencrypted btrfs filesystem. Any other suggestions?
