That is, with the new kernel, the SD reader will work for about minutes after you boot the computer and then it will stop working again. Ken Pratt, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn’t been any activity in it recently. I had to install the proprietary ati fglrx driver, because of weird artifacts with the FOSS driver. Hope I can get help here when the time comes. Once you’ve tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. This is potentially a security vulnerability. Can somebody dig throught the commit logs?

For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. Others that are not so savvy, WILL loose their work.

I hope that you can solve the problem! One thing that’s a bit strange: If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags: It’s like the driver lunux the “There’s something partly into the slot” signal mixed up with the “There’s something definitely in the slot, try to mount it”; and so it tries to access it before it’s fully inserted, only to find that there’s nothing there “No NAND device found”.

We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but this appears to be a “regular” non-security bug. If you want to stay with Ubuntu, you should be able go into “Additional Drivers” and enable the STA driver for your adapter. I have the same problem but I only found out today as that was the first time I was trying to use this slot on my Dell Latitude E I’ll attach the “dmesg egrep ‘sdhci mmc'” as a file.

None of these machines are actually supported by the manufacturers for Linux. All other devices work as expected.

A X server restart should restore the normal behavior not tested yet. The driver needs to be reloaded to get it out of this state. ISO images are available from http: No tweaking, updating drivers, or trying to figure out what’s not working necessary, although I’m sure the time will come.

Helpful bug reporting tips: Comment on this change optional. If so, could you please test for this with the latest development release of Ubuntu?

I inserted llnux 4GB card today, and only part of the directory entries was shown digital camera picturesthose shown could not be opended read error. Ken Pratt kenpratt wrote on I have a dual boot machine and Windows mounts the card s without a problem so I am fairly certain that its not a hardware problem. I can still type, the right and middle mouse button still interact correctly and the lijux interaction is unaffected.


It looks like a duplicate of bug I am guessing it could be a timing problem between different threads on the CPU or GPU drawing different parts of a composite.

Which suggests that is is a user-space problem or a combination of liunx. Last edited by ruddcl; at Need help getting wifi card to work on Dell Latitude D using Ubuntu 9. The SD cards appear to work much better and much more often with the 2.

There seems to be a working driver whose author Maxim Levitsky is trying to get linyx included in 2. Estimated ship date is not till the end of May though. If you are unable to test the mainline kernel, please comment as to why specifically you were unable to test it and add the following tags:
