Just wanted to know if you got this e-mail, as it looks like your
problem is OpenSC does not support the old Muscle 0.9.11. You would have to use
a newer version of the Muscle applet.

Subject: Muscle smart card Applet various versions from M.U.S.C.L.E. and OpenSC

I am not using the Muscle card applet, but was looking looking at the OpenSC
debug log for this thread:
Re: [opensc-devel] The smart card reader is known as "VMware Virtual USB CCID 00 00" in linux ??!!
The OpenSC card-muscle.c (0.12.2 or 0.13.0) is looking for PROTO_VERSION_MAJOR=1
The author of the original note said:
> I've loaded and initialized Muscle applet (0.9.11) on it.
This appears in the log that GET_STATUS is returning: 00 01 00 05 ...
i.e. PROTO_VERSION_MAJOR=0, PROTO_VERSION_MINOR=1
This version from 2003-12-19, does not sound like the latest to me...
Yet in the
Muscle CVS archives:
as of 4 years ago has version.properties has:
And there have been changes in the SVN 9 months ago, 2 years ago and
3 years ago, which are not reflected in the Download page:
Can the download
versions be update, or the page change to say
compile it yourself? Or point to the OpenSC page?
Then on OpenSC-project:
"OpenSC supports the Muscle applet, available from Debian SVN:"
svn co svn://svn.debian.org/muscleplugins/trunk/MCardApplet
(This appears to be the same SVN as on the Muscle page, revision 298
from 9 months ago.)
"An updated version, targeting recent JavaCard 2.2.2 cards with
extended APDUs is available
This github is 3 years old, yet changes where made to the Muscle SVN
9 months ago.
(3 years old)
buffer[pos++] = (byte) 1; // Major Card Edge Protocol version n.
buffer[pos++] = (byte) 3; // Minor Card Edge Protocol version n.
buffer[pos++] = (byte) 0; // Major Applet version n.
buffer[pos++] = (byte) 9; // Minor Applet version n.
Which is in line with the PROTO_VERSION_MAJOR the OpenSC code is looking for.
Can Martin and Ludovic get together and get these versions in sync,
and make it so others don't download the 9 year old version?
