Smile SD Card Reader on Acer Aspire One A150 - Solved in 13.37

It's taken me a week to find it, but I've finally found how to make the SD card reader work properly on my Acer Aspire One A150 with Slackware 13.37 (stable). (Sorry if I'm repeating your work - but I could not find the solution on this site)

Previous to this, the card reader would only register if the SD card was inserted prior to boot.

To /etc/rc.d/rc.modules add the line:

/sbin/modprobe acpiphp
and the card now mounts when inserted as expected.

Simple - when you know how.

Thank you very much for such helpful advice. Finally, my DELL Inspirion has become to autorecognize SD-card.

Before that I had to constantly load and unload the module r852 to be properly recognized SD. And it was just awful.

Thanks again.
