Auto mount SD card not working in Lucid Lynx
 
I am relatively new to Linux and need some help to solve this annoyance.
My SD card reader works on boot but when unmounted will not automatically mount, recognize, subsequent SD cards. I have to reboot to get the next SD card to read. Is there some quick fix for this??

The problem you describe was one I encountered on my Acer Aspire One netbook back when I first bought it and tried running Ubuntu. The problem was that the Ubuntu kernel was not loading the driver for the card reader unless the SD card was inserted prior to booting. The fix I used was adding
Code:

pciehp_force=1
to the kernel line of the menu.lst file.

I found it necessary to add the following lines to my /etc/fstab to get mine to automount correctly.

Code:

/dev/mmcblk0      /media/floppy1  auto    rw,user,noauto  0      0
/dev/mmcblk1      /media/floppy2  auto    rw,user,noauto  0      0

Note that this applies to the AOA110 and AOA150. (although it might work with other machines)

Been there, done that too. What I didn't like about it was that my SD card would mount at a different mount point depending on whether it was the first or second card inserted. Certainly a minor point in the grand scheme of things; I just found it to be annoying. YMMV. Modifying the kernel line in menu.lst (instead of adding the extra entries to /etc/fstab) eliminated the annoyance. Six of one, half a dozen of another.
