    Aspire One - Netboox Remix - Xd Picture Card

    Hi,

    After adding pciehp.pciehp_force=1 to the boot parameters in /boot/grub/menu.lst the buildin cardreader works perfectly for SD memory cards. I'm using netbook remix (9.04) on my Acer Aspire One with bios 3309.

    However; I cannot use Xd Picture Cards. When I plugin a card, nothing happens. Looking in dmesg, nothing shows up.

    Anyone have any idea how to use Xd Picture Cards?

    Thankz!

    I'd also like to know this.
    Presumably the Linpus distro included by default has support for this?
    There must be source available for this functionality, would anyone know where to start looking?

    I'm assuming the drivers they ship are open source, and GPL licensed. If they're GPL licensed, Acer have to make the source available, right?
    I'll try emailing them.

    EDIT: I've sent Acer a message on their official support thingy, and I expect them to get back to me soon. I've requested a copy of the source code from their driver, and I quoted them the GPL.

    I'll post back here when I have any new information

    Plugged in XD card. on 10.04: nothing. I don't have other cards to try. Would be nice to get this working I have a USB to XD card but the small card permanently stuck inside seems like a better option.

    Wow, more than a year old... do I have any chances?

    Same issue with 11.04 on an AOA 110. Is this a lost cause?
