Helo,

this morning I have had a pop up Window in the gnome desktop, that
- the esc service is stopped
- I should restart the esc service or
- restart the computer

But there is no esc servcie in CentOS 5 ?!

What to do? As far as I know, the server is ok. So I have closed the pop
up. It does not come up again after later login.

Putting escd daemon into google brings up this as the first hit.

Sorry, I had searched linux esc with the result:
Definition: ESCD: Extended System Configuration Data (BIOS, PNP)=-O

I have never used smart cards and I will not handle smart cards.

Can I erase it? yum search mentions this package. So I would prefer

yum erase esc

But: I will login in the future too ! Is this package mandatory for
CentOS 6?

Best regards
Helmut

I must be missing something - for smart cards, you need pcscd, and
probably openct, opensc, ccid....

esc can let you look at your card in ways that are similar to what firefox->edit->prefrences->advanced->encryption can, except it is
more limited,
not as reliable (for instance right now FF is seeing my card details, but esc is not),
and is more annoying (i.e. pops up in your way *every* time the card insertion is detected).

My standard thing to do with esc is `yum remove esc`.
every time I see it get installed on machines I use, I hope that it has finally got something I want, but in the RHEL 5.X series it has not.
