Bug Description

After installing softhsm package and trying to init a new token, you will get an error due to a wrong path in the default config file:

> softhsm --init-token --slot 0 --label test
The SO PIN must have a length between 4 and 255 characters.
Enter SO PIN:
The user PIN must have a length between 4 and 255 characters.
Enter user PIN:
Error: The token is not present.
Error: Probably missing write permissions, please check the path and file given in the configuration.

> cat /etc/softhsm/softhsm.conf
# SoftHSM configuration file
# Format:
# <Slot ID>:<Path to the token database>
# The given paths are just an indication to SoftHSM on where it should
# store the information for each token.


After removing the erroneous "/lib" in the path, the command will complete successfully.
