Updated pcsc-lite packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
PC/SC Lite provides a Windows SCard compatible interface for communicating with smart cards, smart card readers, and other security tokens.

Bug Fix

BZ#851199
Despite the update described in the RHBA-2012:0990 advisory, the chkconfig utility did not automatically place the pcscd init script after the start of the HAL daemon. Consequently, pcscd was unable to recognize USB readers. With this update, the pcscd init script has been changed to explicitly start only after HAL is up, thus fixing this bug.
All pcsc-lite users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.

Bug Fix

BZ#812469
Previously, the pcscd init script pointed to the wrong value to identify the HAL daemon. It also wrongly started at runlevel 2. As a result, chkconfig did not automatically place pcscd after the start of the HAL daemon, thus pcscd failed to see USB readers. With this update, the pcscd init script has been changed to properly identify the HAL daemon and only start at runlevels 3, 4, and 5, thus fixing this bug.
