I took the SRPM from Rawhide (coolkey-1.1.0-16.fc14.src.rpm) and was sucessfully able to rebuild and install it on CentOS using the following steps:

I see this with both a 144k CAC and an older card that works fine with the regular CentOS Cookey package.  When I ran Firefox from the command line, I saw the following error:

"set COOL_KEY_LOG_FILE in the environment to point somewhere, and the [coolkey] module will
dutifully log what it's doing" from "Timothy J. Miller" <tmiller@xxxxxxxxx>.

export COOL_KEY_LOG_FILE=/tmp/whatdidcoolkeydo

It did not build right for F14 either, and has been replaced.
of course we could try building

I wonder where we can get access to the SRPM Bob talks about in

I suppose due to 5.5 coming out March 30, 2010, 5.6 should be out ~30 Sept 2010, so we *might* try a
little more patience*** and the SRPM *should* be naturally available at ftp.redhat.
