USB Card reader not working

My USB multi card reader (Vivanco) , which works fine with Debian and Ubuntu, is not working with Arch.

dmesg:

Usually, the sd card should appear as /dev/mmcX, right? How can I get started?

Would it?  Mine are just /dev/sdX.  You do have an sdb, is that just another drive?

Re: USB Card reader not working

Accoring to this wiki, it could: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/HCL/Card_Readers

Anyway, /dev/sdb is a SATA disk.

Re: USB Card reader not working

After rebooting Arch, the SD card reader is working and is auto-mounted when plugged in.

No clue, why..

Re: USB Card reader not working

Probably because you hadn't rebooted since your last kernel update.
