## Obsolete and incompatible software
While looking for information about fingerprint reader support in Linux and other free OSes, you might find references to the following software. Those are either obsolete, or not related to the fprint project.
- `pam_fprint` is replaced by fprintd's `pam_fprintd` module, which splits the PAM conversation from hardware access.
- `fprint_demo` is obsolete. Most features are integrated into fprintd's helpers, and libfprint has an examples section.
