Hello,

I'm facing problems to read my digital camera card on my laptop.
I did some search and added PCMCIA stuffs, especially PATA_PCMCIA and I have also MSDOS filesystem support.

Unfortunately, when I'm inserting a media, I got following messages in system's log :

Code:

and then the CPU load rise to 5 and the machine slow down. Top doesn't see any consuming process.

Any tip to help me to read my card ?

Thanks

destroyedlolo,

Your hint is
Code:
 [ 4979.026261] irq 11: nobody cared (try booting with the "irqpoll" option)


Boot to the grub menu, press e to edit your boot stanza. Add irqpoll to the end of the kernel line and allow the boot to continue.
This is a workaround, not a fix, if it works, only use this when you need it.

Great, I'm able to retrieve all photos :D

But, as you said it's only a workaround as it's working only if the card is in the reader at boot up otherwise I got the same issues :?

But what is the root cause ? Bad hardware, pb in the kernel ?

destroyedlolo,

Its a kernel set up or broken BIOS problem. It may not be fixable.

Play with PCI Quirks options in the Kernel and the IRQ options from /usr/src/linux/Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt.
I typed that by hand - tab completeion is your friend.

Don't bother with a BIOS flash - it may not fix it and you risk bricking your hardware if there is a problem.
