Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 841701
NFC kernel support is disabled
Last modified: 2012-07-20 13:37:46 EDT
Description of problem:
The NFC kernel subsystem is disabled with the latest Fedora kernels.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
NFC is now found on most recent Android phones and high end laptops, but the NFC kernel support for rawhide or F17 is disabled. The NFC daemon can't run without it, preventing applications to do NFC through its D-Bus API.
Apps can also do NFC p2p with e.g.Android phones by using the kernel NFC LLCP sockets, and obviously this can't be achieved without kernel support.
Enabled all the NFC bits in Rawhide...
