    but nothing happens.
    Hmmm... sorry, I don't understand the kernel actions resulting from the suggested code also
    I have just googled around, and found many suggestions, from which for me I seemded only to need this specific one-liner (I did construct the one-liner from some separate actions). Perhaps your SD reader gives you another identification string, or perhaps you need some of the other tips about removing/reloading some modules.

    Let's try some things:

    If I type this (command after the dollar), it shows me my card reader:
    PHP Code:
    lspci grep -"card reader"
    03:01.2 Mass storage controllerTexas Instruments 5-in-1 Multimedia Card Reader (SD/MMC/MS/MS PRO/xD
    Does that work for you ? If not, try typing just "lspci" by itself, and look for your card reader. If you find it, change the "card reader" in the grep into something which identifies your card reader. In that case retry the one-liner with the new string

    String OK, but no success ? Try it like this (use the grep string that works for you):
    PHP Code:
    sudo rmmod tifm_sd
    sudo rmmod mmc_block
    sudo rmmod sdhci
    sudo rmmod tifm_7xx1
    sudo rmmod tifm_core
    sudo modprobe tifm_sd
    sudo modprobe tifm_7xx1
    sudo modprobe tifm_core
    sudo modprobe mmc_core
    sudo modprobe mmc_block
    sudo setpci 
    -`lspci | grep -i "card reader" | awk '{ print $1; }'4c.b=0x22
    sudo modprobe 
    -v sdhci 
    This is a combination of most tips I found, and if I execute this, it gives me these errors, but it functions OK:
    PHP Code:
    ERRORModule mmc_block does not exist in /proc/modules
    ERROR
    Module sdhci is in use by sdhci_pci 
    I also would make sure to try this when you just booted the machine, and without a card in the reader, and only stick in the card after executing this script.

    Hope this works for you... For me it does, and just pops up an auto-mounted folder view of the inserted card.

    Greetings,
    Thijs.

    Sure, no problem, is this what you need?

    PHP Code:
    lspci grep -i sata

    Not sure where to find the used driver. Does this help ?
    PHP Code:
    dmesg grep "SATA"

    The lspci identifies the chipset correctly. Thank you. For the driver, you could try "lsmod | grep -i ahci". If that doesn't produce anything, you could post the output from lsmod and I could figure out which driver is loaded.

    For example on my older macbook, fedora 10 is using the ata_generic driver (as shown with lsmod). The generic driver won't give very good disk performance.

    I'm referencing this page for info on the better performing SATA drivers: https://ata.wiki.kernel.org/index.ph..._driver_status

    Hopefully the M6500 uses the AHCI driver. But if it's not using it, there's still hope. I believe that the bios has to be set for AHCI instead of legacy.

    HI aktaper,

    Here is what I get (the grep stuff on lspci gives exactly same message as yours)

    sudo rmmod tifm_sd
    ERROR: Module tifm_sd does not exist in /proc/modules

    sudo rmmod mmc_block
    ERROR: Module mmc_block does not exist in /proc/modules

    sudo rmmod sdhci
    ERROR: Module sdhci is in use by sdhci_pci

    sudo rmmod tifm_7xx1
    ERROR: Module tifm_7xx1 does not exist in /proc/modules

    sudo rmmod tifm_core
    ERROR: Module tifm_core does not exist in /proc/modules


    sudo modprobe tifm_sd
    FATAL: Error inserting tifm_sd (/lib/modules/2.6.32-24-generic-pae/kernel/drivers/mmc/host/tifm_sd.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)


    sudo modprobe tifm_7xx1
    FATAL: Module tifm_7xx1 not found.

    sudo modprobe tifm_core
    FATAL: Module tifm_core not found.

    For the last 4 commands, no error:
    sudo modprobe mmc_core
    sudo modprobe mmc_block
    sudo setpci
    -s `lspci | grep -i "card reader" | awk '{ print $1; }'` 4c.b=0x22
    sudo modprobe
    -v sdhci



    The card reader still doesn't work. And now dmseg gives:
    193.725209] tifm_sd: Unknown symbol tifm_eject
    193.725300] tifm_sd: Unknown symbol tifm_register_driver

    193.725665] tifm_sd: Unknown symbol tifm_map_sg
    193.725770] tifm_sd: Unknown symbol tifm_unregister_driver


    Any hint?
    Thanks,

    Well, as promising as this looks : http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/08/m...untu-1010.html,
    It DOES mean we will need to wait for 10.10 for a trackpad fix.

    Thanks tahu363 for the info about touchpad. It's two months from now only.
    I hope internal mic and card reader pb will also be fixed in next release.

    Hmmm, no, sorry... Perhaps there's more info for you in this thread ( but of course you probably already found that one... ):

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=420721&page=3

    Hope it helps. By the way, did you try an SD card in there (with/without the tricks) ? It's possible that an XD card needs a different hack, some readers actually have two different reader devices in them...
