How To Install Omnikey Reader On Dreambox - 26-August-2009, 22:46

OK guys since writing the tutorial 'How To Setup A Linux PC Card
Server' I've been asked a lot if the Omnikey reader was compatible
with the Dreambox. Well its seems now it is ! Massive thanks to Jakey!

A pack of drivers / dependency files has surfaced to install the Omnikey
to a Mipsel Dreambox. If you don't know a Mipsel dreambox is basically
the Enigma2 boxes, DM7025, 800 & 8000. This method is not applicable
for the older E1 boxes.
Basically the pack consists of 4 *.ipk installer files which will add the
required components to the Dreambox to run the Omnikey USB reader.
Your image will most likely have the ability to install these via your manual
install option in the addon panel, however to make sure everything is
correct I recommend you install via Telnet and follow this guide below.

FTP the 4 IPK files to your /tmp folder on the dreambox. Then start a
telnet session.

1. ipkg install /tmp/libusb_0.1.12-r0_mipsel.ipk

Installing libusb (0.1.12-r0) to root...
Configuring libusb

2. ipkg install /tmp/pcsc-lite_1.5.5-r0_mipsel.ipk

Installing pcsc-lite (1.5.5-r0) to root...
Configuring pcsc-lite
Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/pcscd ...
/etc/rc2.d/S20pcscd -> ../init.d/pcscd
/etc/rc3.d/S20pcscd -> ../init.d/pcscd
Starting PCSC Daemon: pcscd.
/etc/rc4.d/S20pcscd -> ../init.d/pcscd
/etc/rc5.d/S20pcscd -> ../init.d/pcscd
/etc/rc0.d/K20pcscd -> ../init.d/pcscd
/etc/rc1.d/K20pcscd -> ../init.d/pcscd
/etc/rc6.d/K20pcscd -> ../init.d/pcscd

3. ipkg install /tmp/libpcsclite1_1.5.5-r0_mipsel.ipk

Installing libpcsclite1 (1.5.5-r0) to root...
Configuring libpcsclite1

4. ipkg install /tmp/ccid_1.3.11-r0_mipsel.ipk

Installing ccid (1.3.11-r0) to root...
Configuring ccid

So, once all this is in place, connect the USB reader and set it
up in NewCS as normal. The reader type is

The node address will be simply

If you add a second reader it will be

I don't want to take my server offline to test this as its the only Omnikey
I have at the moment. I have 2 more coming. If you can test before I do
then please do post your comments / findings.

thanks to B16MCC.
