Asus UX31a: Internal SD card reader not detected

The internal SD card reader on my UX31a does not appear to be detected under Fedora 17. It works just fine under Ubuntu 12.04 (booting from a USB stick), so the harware appears to work just fine. Judging by the output of lspci the card reader is not even detected by the kernel:

Code:
[martin@martins ~]$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Ivy Bridge DRAM Controller (rev 09)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 0166 (rev 09)
00:04.0 Signal processing controller: Intel Corporation Device 0153 (rev 09)
00:14.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation Panther Point USB xHCI Host Controller (rev 04)
00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation Panther Point MEI Controller #1 (rev 04)
00:1a.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation Panther Point USB Enhanced Host Controller #2 (rev 04)
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Panther Point High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)
00:1c.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Panther Point PCI Express Root Port 1 (rev c4)
00:1c.1 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Panther Point PCI Express Root Port 2 (rev c4)
00:1d.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation Panther Point USB Enhanced Host Controller #1 (rev 04)
00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation Panther Point LPC Controller (rev 04)
00:1f.2 SATA controller: Intel Corporation Panther Point 6 port SATA AHCI Controller (rev 04)
00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation Panther Point SMBus Controller (rev 04)
00:1f.6 Signal processing controller: Intel Corporation Panther Point Thermal Management Controller (rev 04)
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Device 088e (rev 24)
Judging by the info on Asus' homepage, the card is a Realtek model.

Try using lsusb to look for the device as I doubt it's pci

Code:
lsusb

Interesting--I just found that that's the case on my UX31E. Arch and Debian see it but Fedora doesn't. However, Fedora has no trouble seeing it on a Clevo laptop.

Re: Asus UX31a: Internal SD card reader not detected

I guess I just assumed the SD card reader would run on the PCI bus rather than the internal USB one...

Code:
[martin@martins ~]$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 003 Device 007: ID 04e8:6864 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:0139 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 04f2:b330 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd 
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 8087:07da Intel Corp.
I guess the Realtek device found could very well be the SD card reader (although the sound chip is also made by Realtek, making for some confusion). What would be the next step? There are linux drivers on Realteks homepage, but as far as I know these are now obsolete and the card reader should be supported by the linux kernel. What really confuses me is that it works under Ubuntu 12.04 despite the fact that Fedora 17 uses a newer version of the linux kernel.

Hrrm, thought I posted yesterday--yes, that fixed the issue for me as well, and I added it to my thread on the UX31E. Thank you.

Exclamation Re: Asus UX31a: Internal SD card reader not detected

Whoopeee!! That was easy, I have a Samsung NP356E5C-SO2-UB, with the 0bda:0129 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTS5129 Card Reader Controller, NOT the 0bda:0139 Realtek, but driver mentioned is working in both. 'kmod-staging' provides a BUNCH of h**p://http://www.kroah.com/log/linux/linux-staging-update DOT html
