Description Georges A.K. 2005-11-23 14:37:54 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: 2.6.11
Distribution: SuSE 10.0
Hardware Environment: Acer Ferrari 3000
Software Environment:
Problem Description:
My system is a laptop (acer ferrari 3000) which has a builtin 4-1 card reader.
It used to work just fine with SuSE 9.3 (2.6.11). However, I upgraded to 10.0
(2.6.13) and now,
it doesn't work anymore. Whenever I insert my SD card, the orange light lights
up for quite some time (which is not normal) and then nothing is mounted. I get
this error in dmesg :

I also tried other distros running kernels 2.6.12, 13 or 14 and all are a NO GO.
Only kernels <= 2.6.11 work.

Anyone got an idea ?

Thanx,
Georges.

Do other ports on the 4-in-1 work?

Do other SD cards work?

Can you rebuild a kernel with USB Mass Storage Verbose Debug enabled?

>Do other ports on the 4-in-1 work? 
I have no idea, I don't have any other media to try with, unfortunately. 
However, I have a total of 3 card readers (one of them is the 4-1, the other 2 
are USB sd readers). None of them work.  
 
>Do other SD cards work? 
See previous answer. 
 
>Can you rebuild a kernel with USB Mass Storage Verbose Debug enabled? 
I'll do that soon. I upgraded to 10.1 alpha4, hoping the new kernel (2.6.15) 
would help. Alas, same problem :( 
Comment 3 Greg Kroah-Hartman 2006-02-14 17:47:27 UTC
Can you post the kernel log messages for when you have enabled usb mass storage
debugging?
Comment 4 Greg Kroah-Hartman 2006-03-06 10:43:28 UTC
If you try the latest 10.1 beta kernels, can you let us know if that works
or not?
Comment 5 Georges A.K. 2006-03-06 11:16:16 UTC
Sorry I wasn't able to respond to you yet. I am unfortunately very busy and 
I've switched back to Windows (temporarily only, I hope !). As soon as 10.1 is 
out, I'll try it and tell you.

Georges.

Ok, will close this until then.  Please reopen if you still have issues.
