belgian eID PKCS11 library

This package contains libbeidlibopensc, a library that is loosely based on libopensc with additional support for the Belgian eID card. It was built from the official sources as provided by Zetes Belgium on the Belgian federal website.

The OpenSC library, on which this library was based, now also contains support for the Belgian eID cards. However, since there are still some things that OpenSC chooses not to do (like showing a popup window without the application's interference when the user needs to enter his pincode), applications that want to use the Belgian eID card may have to use this library instead of OpenSC.

Please read the README.Debian file for information on setting up your system so that it can read from smartcards.

Package version:2.6.0-6

    no longer be able to use it with these packages. Sorry

  * Remove libopenct1-dev builddep, and single leftover linkage to

    but there were some leftovers.
  * Copy reader-pcsc.c over from a more recent version of opensc;
    interfaces have changed since this code was written, and otherwise
    it wouldn't compile anymore.
