libnfc usb enumeration patch
There is a problem caused by pcsc-lite-ccid updating the names for some devices under the same USB PID that leads to libnfc-examples tools not detecting the touchatag reader (among others, I guess). Please, see bug 832983.
The attached patch solves the problem. Please, consider applying it to the current libnfc present in Fedora repositories.
I tried to do the same using the last libnfc available upstream but, after a succesful compilation, none of the tools seemed to work, throwing segmentation fault in all the cases. This happens with or without the patch.
libnfc-1.4.2-5.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing libnfc-1.4.2-5.fc17'
as soon as you are able to.
