I followed this howto.
here's the specific part:
But SD cards would only be recognized when one was inserted @ boot time.
(NOTE: This section needs to be improved. It seems that card reader is not truly "Fully functional")
According to DebianAcerOne the following command enables the card reader:
setpci -d 197b:2381 AE=47
The card reader works fine now.
* it might help to suspend/resume
* a static entry for the device /dev/mmcblk01p in /etc/fstab might help
* powersaving can be done with the jmb38x_d3e.sh script -
sudo chmod 754 jmb38x_d3e.sh
sudo mv jmb38x_d3e.sh /usr/local/sbin/
To recognize cards every time.
sudo gedit /usr/local/sbin/jmb38x_d3e.sh
Add the following to line 11
modprobe pciehp pciehp_force=1
After reboot cards are recognized.
After a lot of asking around I've gotten at the situation described above...
Any help is welcome...
I tough it would be a solvable by echoing something to a device or process but so far, no luck.
