Updated esc packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The esc packages contain the Smart Card Manager GUI, which allows user to manage security smart cards. The primary function of the tool is to enroll smart cards, so that they can be used for common cryptographic operations, such as secure e-mail and website access.
The ESC utility did not start when the latest 10 series release of the XULRunner runtime environment was installed on the system. This update includes necessary changes to ensure that ESC works as expected with the latest version of XULRunner.
After removing and replacing an enrolled token, ESC could terminate unexpectedly followed by a traceback. A patch has been applied to address this issue and ESC now displays the enrolled smart card details as expected.
All users of esc are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
