hello again! I'm ressurecting this thread cause I have searched alot for an answer on the matter of the tifm driver.
well first of all, if you enable the mmc_core, mmc_block, tifm_core, tifm_7xx1, tifm_sd modules in the kernel, you'll be able to access Sony SD and microSD cards (I have a couple lying around - 2GB and 8GB).
But I wasn't able to access a 1GB olympus xD card, however much I tried.
Apparently the tifm development team was building a new driver tifm_xD for the xD cards, but that was during kernel 2.6.21 or so.. here is the link http://openfacts.berlios.de/index-en...12/xx21_driver
So no lack on the xD end.
I guess the development has halted or is at least going toooooo slow (if there is nothing about tifm_xD in kernel 220.127.116.11)...
so that's pretty much it about this driver...
If somebody has managed to get an xD card to be read by the (lspci)
06:06.3 Mass storage controller: Texas Instruments PCIxx21 Integrated FlashMedia Controller
using the tifm collection of drivers or otherwise (perhaps with the sdhci drivers) please let me know.
