pklogin_finder works correctly

Firefox works correctly

Smartcard manager fails to see the card.

Hi John,

Thanks for the report, but I believe it's not an issue with pcsc-lite, but with some other component. Do you know what rpm has the "smartcard manager" you mentioned?

Reassigning to esc which is hopefully the correct component.
Comment 3 Jack Magne 2012-06-14 13:00:44 EDT

This is the correct component.
Comment 4 John Wendel 2012-06-28 19:01:00 EDT
smart card manager is now working, I think there was an update that included "esc"

Using the card for login authenication doesn't seem to do anything, I still need to supply a password to gdm.
Comment 5 John Wendel 2012-06-29 17:55:42 EDT
smart card login works in runlevel 3, not working with gdm.
Comment 6 John Wendel 2012-07-02 12:40:45 EDT
My original complaint has been resolved. I'll open a new bug on gdm, since it doesn't support smart card login.
