How to - Compile Oscam on Fedora

You need to connect to your PC using telnet (putty). Select all lines below at the same time and copy paste them in putty (telnet). OS will start to install packages.

yum install cvs subversion autoconf libccid automake libtool gettext make cmake tar bzip2 gzip patch ncurses-bin gcc g++ flex bison pkg-config wget libpng2 libpng3 zlib gcc-c++ pcsc-perl pcsc-tools pcsc-lite pcsc-lite-devel pcsc-lite-doc pcsc-lite-libs ccid ctapi-cyberjack-pcsc monosim pcsc-lite-openct pkg-config wget libpng3 libpcsclite1 libpcsclite-dev libusb-dev libssl-dev libpng12-0 libpng12-dev libpng3 libpng-sixlegs-java libpnglite-dev pngquant libpngwriter0-dev libpngwriter0c2 zlib-bin zlib1g-dbg zlib1g-dev zlib1g zlibc dialog build-essential mercurial hal

Use this command if you have omnikey readers:

yum remove openct

Install this package if you have Smargo cardreader:


tar xjf libusb-1.0.8.tar.bz2

cd libusb-1.0.8

./configure; make; make install

Now we are ready for final steps!

cd .. (you need to come to the root of your sistem)

svn co oscam-svn # you can also add -r ***x at the end, if you want to download specific version of oscam. Lets say 7190. Very useful, especially if newer versions of OScam are very unstable!

cd oscam

mkdir build

cd build

cmake ..


make install (this command will install oscam file to /usr/local/bin)

This is it! Your oscam should support pcsc (omnikey) and smargo cardreaders!
