Fingerprint reader not working
I am using Fedora 12 on my Laptop, Dell M6400, and want to enable the fingerprint reader. If I go to System => Preferences => About me I can't see any option to enable the fingerprint reader. The hardware is working under Windows

In Linux it can work if PAM is installed. I don't not know if this is the case for fedora 12, I am Slackware user.

I saw a report of somebody having it working on an other Dell model with Debian Lenny distribution though, see here.

Thanks for your help but it looks like my fingerprint reader is not recognized by Fedora.
