Regression: Sandberg card reader not working anymore

Bug #160550 reported by ChristofferS on 2007-11-06
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
hal (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Using gutsy.

With edgy the card reader was working fine. It also works fine in Debian etch.

In gutsy, I can see entries for Compact Flash, Memory Stick, Smart Media, but not for the SD card that is in the drive.

The kernel sees the card and when I mount it by hand it works fine, so it is probably not caused by the kernel.

Different hardware, but you might find something useful looking at the Texas Instruments bug for card readers? Bug #180093. And for what it's worth you're the only bug I can find here who even mentions Smart Media cards - they don't work for me Bug #180093

I just noticed you've said this is a regression - which kernel(s) did it work with and which kernel are you running?

ChristofferS (ubuntu-curo) wrote :

Gutsy stock kernel: 2.6.22
Debian etch: 2.6.18
Edgy: 2.6.17

Again, as I said in my original bug report, this is likely not caused by the kernel since mounting the card by hand works fine.

I am wondering why none of the bugs that affect hal have an upstream bug reported?

This will never get fixed if just stays unnoticed here.
