SD card reader

Hontas_7441 (Mandriva Club member) found out the Texas Instrument SD Card reader available on some laptops is supposed to be supported in kernel 2.6.17. But setting it up isn’t really easy. I own this card reader which I claimed to be unsupported by the linux kernel and hopefully, I’m now wrong 🙂 I’ll help him if I find out enough time to do so.

Hontas_7441 (membre du Club Mandriva) a trouvĂ© que le lecteur de cartes SD Texas Instrument disponible sur certains laptops est supposĂ© ĂŞtre supportĂ© dans le noyau 2.6.17. Mais le mettre en place n’est pas rĂ©ellement facile. Je dispose de ce lecteur de carte dont j’ai prĂ©tendu qu’il n’Ă©tait pas supportĂ© par le noyau linux et heureusement, j’ai tort maintenant 🙂 Je l’aiderais si je trouve assez de temps pour le faire.
