I am trying to get a pcmcia smartcard (SCM243) working on an old IBM laptop. I have installed the scr24x_v4.2.6 driver and running lspcmcia-v shows the smartcard but it also lists "no driver found". Any suggestions on how to get this driver associated with the pcmcia card?

TIA

Hi
What release of SLED and arch are you running?

Can you post the relevant output for the device from;


uname -a
lspci -nnk
hwinfo --pcmcia
hwinfo --pcmcia-ctrl

Hi
Hmmm, have you tried starting the pcscd daemon?


rcpcscd status
rcpcscd start
lspcmcia -v

Do you have a download link for the driver your using? Might have to
add the id's to the src.

SUSE has some (zypper se pcsc) drivers pscsc-lite is installed?

Hi
Looking at the code, seems there are udev rules involved and lots of
other bits and pieces...

Is there a /dev/SCR24x0 created on your system? I don't have any 32bit
hardware I can use to try things out....

It also refers to pcsc-lite so I'm guessing (since it does refer to the
2.6 kernel) that most things to get it to work a represent in the 3.x.x
kernels.

How did you go about building the driver etc, where there errors?

I found the info on this smartcard reader on an ubuntu forum - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1006111
I unzipped the files and ran ./install and did not see any errors. The thread also indicated that the driver did not create the nodes so I used
mknod SCR24x0 c 251 0
on /dev and /lib/udev/devices. I have pcsc-lite on the system. Do I need to tweak a conf file for this driver?

Hi
So you ran modprobe SCR24x as well and can see the module loaded in the
output of lsmod?
