gnupg update to 1.4.4-2 breaks ccid smartcard reader support
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
After updating gnupg to 1.4.4-2 via yum, access to ccid smartcard reader
attached on USB no longer works. An strace shows no attempts ta access
/dev/bus/usb/* at all, so it seems this new version was compiled w/o support for
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hawe reader working with fedora stock rpm (gnupg-22.214.171.124-2)
2. gpg --card-status (should work)
3. yum update gnupg
4. gpg --card-status
gpg skips detection of ccid readers and complains about libpcsclite missing.
reader still working
This also needed to be fixed in the development tree. Thanks for catching it!
The 1.4.4-2.2 package should show up in updates-testing sometime today, and
barring new bug reports will be moved to updates-final either tomorrow or Friday.
