Note that re-configuring a card is only possible with certain cards; it
is an optional feature of the specification.  I don't know the card from - you may want to ask them what they implement.

If gpg --card-status -v does not hsow any hints and you have the time,
you can add some debugging options:  Add these lines to

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
log-file /some/where/scd.log
debug ipc,reader,cardio
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---


  gpgconf --kill scdaeemon

then try again and have a look at the log file.  We might be able to
help anlyzing the log but we would see the PINs etc.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
