I am not sure why that is. As far as the labels, you need to copy the exact message - I don't think it is talking about file system labels. Dumb question - when you are trying to use fdisk, are you using mmcblk0 or mmcblk0p1? You should be using mmcblk0. > > I have similar problem on HPnx500 with a built-in sd card reader > > After insert sd card, dmesg only show > > tifm_core: MMC/SD card detected in socket 0:0 > > nothing happening in /dev > > here is output of lsmod|egrep 'sd|timf' > > > sdhci 17540 0 > tifm_sd 12552 0 > mmc_core 40604 2 sdhci,tifm_sd > tifm_core 10268 3 tifm_ms,tifm_sd,tifm_7xx1 > sd_mod 26008 5 > scsi_mod 122876 4 usb_storage,sg,libata,sd_mod > > > how to get this fixed? > You have a different chip set from the OP - you have the TI chip set, and he has the Ricoh chip set. They use different drivers. I am not sure why you are having problems with the TI drivers - they have been working correctly in my Toshiba laptop. I forget the first kernel that they started working without tweaking the registers before loading the modules, but I think it was in FC6. You should file a bug report because it may be something to your specific setup and it will probably not be fixed otherwise - the developers do not know there is a problem if the people it is not working for do not file a bug report.
