I forgot the essential, Hello and a very big thank you in advance.

All my excuses

Comment 2 Jakub Jelen 2019-06-24 08:17:55 UTC
I do see this as a new package review request for Fedora. I do not see this as a good idea to bundle this inside of pcsc-lite nor the base pcsc-lite-ccid. Fast check of the sources looks like the driver is released as a open source with sensible license so it should not be a problem.

Ideally, if you would like to participate in Fedora, it would be nice if you could learn how to create a new package for Fedora and submit it for a review [1]. Otherwise, I can have a look into that in coming weeks.


Comment 3 MicMor 2019-06-24 12:10:12 UTC
my English being very limited, I will start by reading the instructions properly and trying to understand them. Otherwise, nice challenge for me.

Comment 4 Jakub Jelen 2019-06-28 13:11:54 UTC
I created a copr repo with the latest verison of pcsc-lite-acsccid packaged:

Please, give it a try if it works for you. After that, I can submit a new package request to get it to the official Fedora repositories.

Comment 5 MicMor 2019-06-29 10:53:41 UTC

Thank you. 

Can I test because I saw that the compilation was bad (build false)?

Comment 6 Jakub Jelen 2019-07-01 08:08:02 UTC
The build failed only on EPEL where are probably some dependencies missing. All Fedora versions builds succeeded:

Comment 7 MicMor 2019-07-01 12:49:01 UTC
It is Ok for me.

Installed without problem. The ACS ACR-38U card reader is operational.

Comment 8 MicMor 2019-07-01 12:49:57 UTC
Thank you for your works.
