I'm trying to use a smart card reader, without any luck. I've installed pcscd and whatever else yum pilled in and have 2 new services running (pcscd and ???). The system log shows the following failure to setup the device. I'm stuck.

Any clues appreciated.

Thanks,

John

it looks like you have a ActivCard USB Reader V2,

with usb product id 0x0008

Some folks have had luck upgrading the firmware on SOME instances of that hardware with the latest firmware from SCM for the SCR-331.

If it works then you now have a reader that acts like a

if it don't work I suspect you have a very light paperweight at the end, and then again, that is pretty much what you got now.

Before buying later I would suggest looking more at the pcsclite lists:

Good luck.
