Thread: realtek SD card reader not recognized

  1. #1

    Default realtek SD card reader not recognized

    The SD card reader is not recognized on my laptop. The vendor is realtek. Does anyone know if there is a driver that can be downloaded or some other work around to get the SD card reader working?

    lspci output:

    Code:
    6c:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 5260 (rev 01)
    Thanks.

    I guess I'll take this to mean there is no linux driver for this card reader.

    Hi
    I'm guess this is a fairly new system? Can you posu the full output of lspci;

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -A3 5260
    I would take a guess it's the rtsx_pci, but doesn't have your ID in the kernel (yet).

    A bug report might be the way to go?

    Yes, it's fairly new. It's a Dell precision 7530.
    Output of lspci:

    Code:
    6c:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device [10ec:5260] (rev 01)

    I'll fill out a bug report.

    Hi
    So I see it's in the later kernel, hopefully they will backport...

    Code:
    /sbin/modinfo rtsx_pci |grep 5260
    
    alias:          pci:v000010ECd00005260sv*sd*bcFFsc*i*
    
    uname -a

    Default Re: realtek SD card reader not recognized

    Thanks for the info. I have a few other unknown devices in my hwinfo output. I was going to install the newest kernel to test what else is now recognized but I'm not sure how to go about that. Doing a distribution upgrade to the kernel-stable repo wants to uninstall my existing kernel, which I'd like to avoid, but just installing the standalone kernel does not update grub so the kernel won't load. How do I add the new kernel to grub?

    Thanks.

    Hi
    No zypper dup required, you should be able to just;
    Code:
     zypper in kernel-default --from <the repo number>
    It will pull in the required files....

    Yes, but that results in a boot error stating something to the effect of "must load kernel first." I tried it, I can't boot the new kernel unless I do zypper dup, which uninstalls the old one.

    Hi
    OK, so I added the kernel:stable repository (I'm assuming you added the same one as me?);

    Code:
    zypper ar -f -g -n "Kernel:Stable" https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard/ repo-kernel-stable
    zypper ref <accept key always>
    
    zypper up kernel-default
    ...There is an update candidate for 'kernel-default', but it is from a different vendor. Use 'zypper install kernel-default-4.20.6-3.1.g463cfd2.x86_64' to install this candidate...
    
    zypper -vvv install kernel-default-4.20.6-3.1.g463cfd2.x86_64
    
    'kernel-default-4.20.6-3.1.g463cfd2.x86_64' not found in package names. Trying 'kernel-default.x86_64 = 4.20.6-3.1.g463cfd2'.
    Selecting 'kernel-default-4.20.6-3.1.g463cfd2.x86_64' from repository 'Kernel:Stable' for installation.
    Resolving package dependencies...
    Force resolution: No
    
    The following 2 package updates will NOT be installed:
      kernel-firmware  20190118-35.1  noarch  Kernel:Stable  obs://build.opensuse.org/Kernel
      ucode-amd        20190118-35.1  noarch  Kernel:Stable  obs://build.opensuse.org/Kernel
    
    <exit install>
    
    zypper -vvv install kernel-default-4.20.6-3.1.g463cfd2.x86_64 kernel-firmware-20190118-35.1.noarch ucode-amd-20190118-35.1.noarch
    ...
    Kernel installs along with rebuilding initrd and grub, reboot, enroll key, reboot, select advanced options.. I see;

    Click image for larger version.

    I added the same repo as you. I also get the same boot menu as well. The new kernel is listed in the boot menu, however when I select the kernel to boot, then I get:

    Code:
    error: you must load the kernel first
    and I am unable to boot.
