Talk:Script for enabling the fingerprint reader with BioAPI

From ThinkWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

With only 2 minor changes this script works on fc5 as well...

You need to change the line that says:

grep -q 'Fedora Core release 4' /etc/redhat-release || { echo \

to say:

grep -q 'Fedora Core release 5' /etc/redhat-release || { echo \

Also, you need to add a patch for the bioapi to get it to compile on fc5 with gcc4.1:

diff -ur bioapi-1.2.2/addins/dl/mds/dal_classes.h

                DAL_DATABASE_INFO_REF_PTR &prefDatabase,
         PORT_MUTEX_HANDLE &Mutex);
+       CSSM_RETURN GetDBNamesAndParameters(
                                CSSM_DL_DB_HANDLE DLDBHandle,
                                DAL_DB_OPEN_PARAM_PTR pParam);

I added a line to apply this patch:

... tar xjf bioapi-latest.tar.bz2 pushd bioapi-1.2.2 patch -p1 < ../bioapi-gcc41.patch ./configure --with-Qt-dir=no --prefix=$WHERE ...

Can anyone else confirm that works and perhaps merge into the main script?
