Problem generating keys on FSFE card

thanks for the hint. The gpg internal CCID reader works and
it seems it solved the problem.
Just as an info for the other fellow list members:
IMHO the gpg version included in SUSE 10.1 was not compiled
with libusb support thus it requires the pcscd and the
associated libraries. Therefore I downloaded the current version
(1.4.5) and did the usual tripple-play
./configure; make; sudo make install
Now I can access the smart card directly via CCID (after having
done the preliminary steps to install the card reader in udev)
BTW, the howto on the FSFE page
"http://www.fsfe.org/en/card/howto/subkey_howto" states that
after successful creation of the sub-keys I shall register
the new encryption sub-key (stored on the card) with the
key servers. What about the signature sub-key? Or shall I
register the complete key, that is the keys created with
"addcardkey" and the ElGamal encryption key, with the key
server? Some advise appreciated.
