I migrated from Debian to Fedora Core 8 a while ago. I'm generally using
my OpenGPG Smartcard only with Thunderbird/Enigmail, but any now and
then I want to use plain ol' gpg.

However, doesn't work.

[alex at castor ~]$ gpg --card-status
gpg: detected reader `SCM SPR 532 (21250709203493) 00 00'
gpg: pcsc_connect failed: sharing violation (0x8010000b)
gpg: card reader not available
gpg: OpenPGP card not available: general error

[alex at castor ~]$ ps -ef |grep pcsc
root      2552     1  0 17:10 ?        00:00:00 pcscd
alex      5340     1  0 18:46 ?        00:00:00 pcsc-wrapper -- 1

Hm, any idea? I couldn't find a manpage to that pcsc-wrapper so I don't
really know what that does.
