Issues with coolkey

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

I think something needs to be updated in this process because after emerging app-crypt/coolkey along with dependencies, I had trouble running /etc/init.d/pcscd. I was able to start and detect my smartcard in "debugging" mode (pcscd -a -d -f) when run as root.. This problem has to do with updates to the package where it runs as user 'nobody' instead of as root. --Kodur (talk) 02:03, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Although the pcscd ebuild elog states that pcscd is run as nobody:pcscd, it's actually run as pcscd:pcscd. I guess it's just a typo that should be corrected. Try adding EXTRA_OPTS="-ad" to /etc/conf.d/pcscd and restart pcscd. Then check /var/log/messages for any clues as to why you are having troubles starting pcscd.--BT (talk) 06:08, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
