On systems with the pcsc-lite-openct package uninstalled, if the pcscd service terminated unexpectedly or was killed, restarting or stopping and starting pcscd failed. This update modifies pcscd to remove the pcscd.comm and pcscd.pub files after pcscd terminates unexpectedly or is killed. As a result, pcscd can be restarted or stopped and started again as expected in the described situation. (BZ#1171118)

Description Gerrit Slomma 2014-12-05 11:39:26 UTC
Description of problem: If stoped or restarted pcscd or corresponding init-script fails to remove pcscd.comm and pcscd.pub. Therefore pcscd remains in stopped state and can not be restarted before these two files are deleted manually Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): yum list pcsc-lite pcsc-lite.x86_64 1.5.2-13.el6_4 pcsc-lite.x86_64 1.5.2-14.el6 How reproducible: do a /etc/init.d/pcscd restart or /etc/init.d/pcscd stop Steps to Reproduce: 1. /etc/init.d/pcscd stop 2. /etc/init.d/pcscd start (fails!) 3. rm /var/run/pcscd.comm /var/run/pcscd.pub -f 4. /etc/init.d/pcscd start (succeeds) OR 1. /etc/init.d/pcscd restart (fails!) 3. rm /var/run/pcscd.comm /var/run/pcscd.pub -f 4. /etc/init.d/pcscd start (succeeds) Actual results: pcscd is not restarted. Expected results: pcscd is restarted. Additional info: Problem does surface if pcsc-lite-openct is installed with pcsc-lite and removed afterwards. At least Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 and 6.6 with corresponding pcsc-lite-packages are affected.

pcsc-lite do not use /var/run/pcscd.pub since version 1.6.0 (May 2010). I guess this bug is already fixed in a "recent" version of pcsc-lite.
Comment 3 Gerrit Slomma 2014-12-05 15:01:36 UTC
that may be, but as it is i am stuck with the version that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 provides.

Gerrit, pcscd removes those files when it stops on it's own. The only issue is when it crashes, or is killed with kill -KILL I've seen other weirdness when you install pcsc-lite-openct and then uninstall it. That's because pcsc-lite-openct will pull in openct. If you have openct installed and pcsc-lite, but not pcsc-lite-openct pcsc-lite and openct will conflict. yum remove openct should fix your issue. I'll still look into removing those files on stop as a robustness improvement. Asha: here's how you can reliably reproduce the issue: as root: # service pcscd start --> #(make sure pcscd is started) Starting PC/SC smart card daemon (pcscd): --> or Starting PC/SC smart card daemon (pcscd): [ OK ] # service pcscd status #(get the pid of the pcscd process) pcscd (pid 15349) is running... --> pid number will vary use the number above in the command below # kill -KILL 15349 # service pcscd stop Stopping PC/SC smart card daemon (pcscd): [FAILED] --> failure is expected, the daemon is not running # service pcscd start Starting PC/SC smart card daemon (pcscd): [FAILED] --> this will be [ OK ] after the patch. Note: start will not work until you do a stop if you kill by hand, or pcscd crashes.
