SD CARD RTS5229 reader not recognized

Hi guys,

i’m new here… :smiley:
I didn’t find the answear on google…

a driver for read my sd card, i need it for my raspberry pi

thanks.

What’s your model?
Is an USB?
or Building in your box Sometimes managed as an USB port?
What Howto are you follow? I suggest this raspberry-pi

Normaly we don’t have driver’s here, all are automaticaly support by the kernel, type this in your terminal:

lsusb

or

lspci

i do not use usb, i have card reader slot on my laptop (toshiba laptop).

i will install fedora on my raspberry pi, thanks you for the link.

the problem is: in can not format my sd card on fedora.

Welcome! @WAL

The problem that your card reader is not recognize by the kernel, this can be a bug or a regression:

lspci -nnpk
lspci -vmmnn
lspci -v

This Card Reader is manage through rtsx_(pci|usb) in upstream.

You can try to unload and then reload the driver again and look if this work:

Get a list all modules that manage your card…

lsmod | grep rts

remove and load again

modprobe -r rtsx_pci
modprobe rtsx_pci

Look at the message:

journalctl -b | tail

if everyting is ok, try to format your sd card… follow the guide…

Please do this, all in the same session, in sequence:

modprobe -r rtsx_pci
modprobe rtsx_pci

Look at the message:

journalctl -b | tail

and the last step:

lspci

NOTE

If you see this message again in the last lspci is a driver problem (Bug’s or Regression) and should be reported to the KERNEL team because the driver doesn’t recognize your reader card:

**01:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]:

With all this information login in redhat bugzilla with your FAS an report with all this information howto-file-a-bug

that’s the message after all: :expressionless:

01:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTS5229 PCI Express Card Reader (rev 01)
my disks:

upgrade to fedora 30 can solve my problem ? :thinking:

Thanks.

Try this:

modprobe -r rtsx_pci
modprobe -r rtsx_pci_sdmmc
modprobe -r rtsx_pci_ms
depmod -a
modprobe -r rts_pstor
modprobe rts_pstor

Now check which module is operated:

lspci -v

if everything go well, Now blacklisted rtsx_pci adding at the end of this file :

sudo echo "blacklist rtsx_pci" >> /lib/modprobe.d/dist-blacklist.conf

Show Blacklist:

modprobe --showconfig | grep blacklist

Regards…

hi,

modprobe -r rts_pstor >> modprobe: FATAL: Module rts_pstor not found.
modprobe rts_pstor >> modprobe: FATAL: Module rts_pstor not found in directory /lib/modules/5.0.10-200.fc29.x86_64

those commands does not work

I think we finally found a good method, try to compile the driver by yourself:

delete the line in this file that point out to: blacklisted rtsx_pci

sudo nano /lib/modprobe.d/dist-blacklist.conf

sudo dnf install kernel kernel-{core,devel,modules*,headers} gcc gcc-c++ dkms git

You can have two Option:

  1. from REALTEK, search PCIE RTS5229 card reader driver for Linux, you can read README.txt

    • make
    • sudo make install
    • sudo depmod
    • reboot your computer
  2. from GITHUB

    • Clone this repo
    • Copy the whole folder into /usr/src/rts5229-1.07/
    • dkms install -m rts5229 -v 1.07
    • Copy blacklist-rts5229.conf to /etc/modprobe.d/ (Optional)
    • reboot your computer

hi,

1.REALTEK did not sent to me download link.
2. Successfully installed, nothing changed :expressionless:

Thanks.

Could you please install this application via Flatpak and run it, and you can find in gnome-shell, that application open a terminal and run a Test of all your Hardware and provide and URL copy then an open in a web browser … or run in terminal:

Flatpak

Add a remote:

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://dl.flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

Install universal package:

flatpak install flathub org.linux_hardware.hw-probe

Now you can create computer probes:

flatpak run org.linux_hardware.hw-probe -all -upload

and try the following step:

NOTES:

You can find your SmarCard Smartcards, here

First you should be sure that your system detect your smart card :

open a terminal and type the follow :

lsusb

Install opensc (OpenSC provides a set of libraries and utilities to work with smart cards) :

sudo dnf install opensc ccid pcsc-lite pcsc-tools

enable the systemd process daemon :

sudo systemctl enable pcscd        # enable at boot
sudo systemctl start pcscd           # start the process
sudo systemctl status pcscd        # verify the status

Workaround in Terminal

REMEMBER to delete the line in this file that point out to: blacklisted rtsx_pci

sudo nano /lib/modprobe.d/dist-blacklist.conf # and delete the line blacklisted ***rtsx_pci***

insert the card :

sudo pcsc_scan

check the lector :

opensc-tool -l

¿Card Available?

opensc-tool -an

We can read the content?

pkcs11-tool -L
