SDIO Wifi card Linux Drivers?


www.sandisk.com/retail/c-wifi-sd.asp

Anyone know if there is a Linux driver for this? I've googled to hell but couldn't find anything... Or should I say: Are there any SD card drivers for linux?

SDIO-Wifi

Hi !

I'm searching too....

I have a SanDisk 256MB+WifFi card, and I want to use it in my SD Slot in a Compaq nw8000 Notebook
(Fedora 2 + homeBrewn kernel)

What i've found now :

* Linux has MMC drivers (Same Physical Format as SD cards)
* Most SD Cards are accessible with MMC Drivers
* SD Cards have an Security layer inside the card (If I understand the the Documentation correct)
* How to acces an SD Card is not Public, but :
* The Geeks at Fujitsu are working on a SDIO Driver for Linux
* Access to SDIO devices is not the same as accessing SD storage

hope, I find something more useful ...

Yeah, hopefully they will at least support SD memory cards, that would be great (hard to find plain MMC cards now, everything is SD). SDIO, even better.
