Re: [K12OSN] smart card reader

The Via Eden is not really a 586/686 clone, it is more of a 386 one.  If you
go to the Via Arena at http://www.viaarena.com/, I think it has a few
articles about using the Epia with Linux and the fact that building for the
386 is better and less error prone.  The big problem is that 386 support is
fading away,  in fact for the testing and unstable version of Debian,
producing 386 code from gcc is broken.

If you are using Debian, I would try to use a version of glibc that is
earlier than 3.0 and recompile the linux driver.  Be warned that the name
mangling has been changed in gcc after 3.0 and if you use an old version for
a driver you may have to also use an old Linux kernel.

If you are using a RedHat kernel, try to go for 7.2 or 8.0, not the new
version 9.
