All Omnikey based readers don't work with 2k keys.  There is a hack in
scdaemon which sometimes helps, but in general they are not supported;
neither with the internal ccid driver nor by pcsc-lite.

They work under Windows because the proprietary driver there is able to
use an undocumented feature of the readers.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
