USB smartcard reader


Hi everyone.
I have a question I hope someone here can answer...
Just now, I'm trying install a USB smartcard reader on my Slackware 10.0 server at home. I've upgraded to 2.6.13 kernel, and USB is compiled into the kernel. Also have USB Serial support compiled in.

From DMESG:
ohci_hcd: 2005 April 22 USB 1.1 'Open' Host Controller (OHCI) Driver (PCI)
USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver v2.3
PCI: Found IRQ 9 for device 0000:00:14.2
uhci_hcd 0000:00:14.2: Intel Corporation 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 USB
uhci_hcd 0000:00:14.2: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
uhci_hcd 0000:00:14.2: irq 9, io base 0x00002400
hub 1-0:1.0: USB hub found
hub 1-0:1.0: 2 ports detected
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage
USB Mass Storage support registered.
usb 1-1: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
usb 1-2: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
usbcore: registered new driver hiddev
input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB Mouse] on usb-0000:00:14.2-2
usbcore: registered new driver usbhid
drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: v2.01:USB HID core driver
usbcore: registered new driver usbserial
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for Generic
usbcore: registered new driver usbserial_generic
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial Driver core v2.0
mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice

My question/goal:
I want to be able to access the USB cardreader as a serial device (ttyS0).
Can anyone point me in the right direction to achieve this???

In /dev/ I can't find anything called ttyS0-x or /dev/usb/xxx

Anyone got any tips for me??

Hi,
I don't think you have to specifically install reader. Since it is a usb card reader you just put the card in the reader and plug the reader into the usb port and it will appear on your desktop as a removable storage. Or if you are using command line, you can check /media directory for automounted usb storage.

Tux,

Thanks for the quick reply.
I forgot to mention, I'm only using console.
Also: It's not reading SD / MMC / etc.. cards.
I'm using it to read a normal smartcard, like: SIM-cards, Satellite tuner cards.. I have a program, that should be able to read this as /dev/ttyS0..

Only problem is: I don't have a /dev/ttyS0, and certainly nothing called /dev/usb*

sorry for getting your question wrong...I have no idea how I would do that.

Good luck,
