@grawity PKCS#11 tools (browser integration and ssh-agent) work perfectly without p11-kit integration.

Even without integration i can see etoken using

p11-kit list-modules

I do not see any need for p11-kit config file for etoken.

@Serus: Do you have pcscd.service running?

(also @s3rj1k etoken does work with all open-source PKCS#11 tools I've tried; what would be the point of sac-core otherwise?)

I'm not exactly sure, but veracrypt doesn't want to work with my Aladdin eToken Pro 32K 4.2B when the daemon is not running. Same goes for opensc, it shows no available slots.

@Serus Exactly what functionality does the daemon provide?

@Serus what do you mean by 2016 version?

currently package uses latest available version from Safenet (9.1.7)

Serus commented on 2018-04-11 07:54

Please restore to the 2016 version, I need the etoken service for it to work with veracrypt.

@grawity, removed explicit calls in post_install and pre_install hooks, replaced with message.

no point in p11-kit integration as etoken never worked correctly with open source PCKS11 tools.

There is no need to run ldconfig (especially not before the transaction) – pacman does it by itself.

Starting services in post_install also seems unnecessary and in general goes against Arch's packaging policy; it would be better to show a message instead.

(As for wanting the package to "just work", I'd instead argue for bringing back the p11-kit integration...)

Let me be more specific, where is the full package? Giving the file name doesn't help much.

s3rj1k commented on 2017-04-20 14:16

As package name implies this is core only package, full version can be found by this name SafenetAuthenticationClient-9.0.43-0_amd64.deb
