card reader

first tell us which type of card reader you have. therfore you should login as root ("su -") and type "lspci -v". please post the output here, then we will see, what we can do. the problem will be, if you have a sd card reader it will probably never ever be supported by linux since the sd cards have a special license or something like that which will not give linux users and developers the opportunity to develop drivers for these cards. if you have a mmc or other cards, there is some chance to get it working. you could also have a look at "www.tuxmobil.??", try google.

hope this helps for the first seconds.

ps.: i use a usb-cable to put my pictures from the digicam to the hard disk.

Texas instruments card reader

seems to be the same i have. up to now there is no support available for that card reader - in first instance also not from texas instruments. am I right that this is a SD card reader? If so, no chance, try usb, that's all I can tell you.

sc card

that's what I found out for this Texas thing. But you can search on your own in google. try also www.tuxmobil.org. there you find a lot of interesting links, hints etc. for laptops, card readers etc.

sorry for that first bad answer...

The tuxmobil link looks promising. On my HP Pavilion, the computer came with a small adapter that you can plug into the USB port to use an SD card.

Enable card reader on DV1000 - Success !!!

Hey guys... for those you need to enable the card reader on Dv1000 you have to do as following:

$ lspci |grep 'FlashMedia'

Result:
02:09.3 Mass storage controller: Texas Instruments PCIxx21 Integrated FlashMedia Controller

We need those numbers to verify the bus access (could change from one device to another).

Create a file
$sudo nano /etc/init.d/sdhci

copy and paste the next script.

#!/bin/sh

# Get lsb functions
. /lib/lsb/init-functions

case "$1" in

start)
log_begin_msg "Configuring card reader"

modprobe fakephp || return 1
setpci -s 02:09.3 86.b=90
setpci -s 02:09.3 4c.b=02 # FlashMedia SD disable
setpci -s 02:09.3 04.b=06 # SDHCI Mem+ BusMaster+
setpci -s 02:09.3 88.b=01 # SDHCI DMA enable
modprobe sdhci || return 1

log_end_msg $?
;;

stop)
log_begin_msg "Shutting down card reader"

modprobe -r sdhci
lsmod | grep -q sdhci && return 1
setpci -s 02:09.3 88.b=00 # SDHCI DMA disable
setpci -s 02:09.3 04.b=07 # SDHCI Mem- BusMaster-
setpci -s 02:09.3 4c.b=00 # FlashMedia SD enable
setpci -s 02:09.3 86.b=d0
modprobe -r fakephp

log_end_msg $?
;;

*)
log_success_msg "Usage: /etc/init.d/sdhci start|stop"
exit 1
;;
esac

exit 0


Save the file and check for permisions
$sudo chmod 0755 /etc/init.d/sdhci
$sudo chown root:root /etc/init.d/sdhci

Initialize the device
$sudo /etc/init.d/sdhci start

And make it starts on every boot
$ sudo update-rc.d sdhci defaults

and thats all folks !!!!
Greetings....
