Do i need "RPM Packages" or "SuSe Source code packages"
I have a Gemalto PC USB-SL Smartcard reader, and want to
install drivers and the PC-SC Lite app.
I found the drivers and app here:
My question is, wich file to download?
Im guessing this one:
Yes go for the source code. That rpm is better suited to RedHat systems. Although they are both GNU/Linux, not all put their system files in the same locations.
Need a little additional help here :)
First i installed the pcsc-lite deamon, by cd to pcsc-lite-1.2.9-beta10 dir, then run ./configure, make and make install.
Then i want to install the CCID driver, but when i cd to ccid-1.2.4 dir, and run ./configure i get this:
I looked, and i do have /use/local/lib/pkgconfig/libpcsclite.pc
Here is a qoute from the INSTALL file:
But i do have this /usr/lib/pcsc/drivers/
So i think i have to use the --enable-usbdropdir=DIR argument,
Should i try "./configure --enable-usbdropdir=/usr/lib/pcsc/drivers/"?
An RPM file is just a package. In the end it can also contain source code (RPM's do not necessarily contain binary executables). The advantage of RPM packages that the user doesn't have to remember install locations, making maintenance easier.
As a matter of fact, RPM is specific to RedHat, even if developed by RedHat employees. Suse is using the RPM packaging format as well. Despite the fact that both RedHat/Fedora and Suse use RPM's, their contents can be different, always according to the file system concepts of the target distribution.
