Hi. I'm running VL5.8 on a Toshiba laptop (Tecra A8) which has a built-in SD card reader.
root:# lspci | grep -i sd
03:0b.3 Class 0805: Texas Instruments PCIxx12 SDA Standard Compliant SD Host Controller
I have re-compiled a 2.6.21 kernel which I think includes what I need. I can modprobe sdhci (which also loads mmc_core. I have to separately modprobe mmc_block)
There are some posts like http://forums.scotsnewsletter.com/index.php?s=5d201e89a0b49c546935da5abb412b5e
which discuss using setpci to change one of the registers, but i don't think that applies to me because i think they had to disable another device from trying to access the reader
Then everyone seems to be able to access the device on /dev/mmcblk0p1
I get no such device. I've also tried /dev/sdb (/dev/sda is my sata hard drive) and a few other names without success.
Would device should it be called for mounting etc. ?
Is there something else I should check? The card is definitely OK, formatted with fat32
