[SOLVED] Trouble mounting microSD card

I'm running Arch on a 15" HP Spectre X360 laptop. I'm trying to mount a Samsung EVO 32 GB microSD card (the slot is for regular SD cards so I'm using the included microSD to SD adapter). I've installed udisks2 and started the corresponding udisks2.service. The wiki indicates that the card should end up mounting under /run/media/user/, but this doesn't happen. It does not show up in the output of lsblk, so I can't manually mount it either. I've tried using udiskie and the bash script from the wiki, but those didn't do anything either. udev and dmesg both seem to notice the card when I insert it. Also, I know that the card itself is fine since it works with Windows and my Raspberry Pi. The output of relevant commands is listed below.

$ uname -r
5.3.5-arch1-1-ARCH

$ udevadm monitor
monitor will print the received events for:
UDEV - the event which udev sends out after rule processing
KERNEL - the kernel uevent

KERNEL\[108981.274310\] add      /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.4/0000:6d:00.0/rtsx\_pci\_sdmmc.0/mmc\_host/mmc0/mmc0:0001 (mmc)

$ dmesg

rtsx_pci               81920  2 rtsx_pci_sdmmc,rtsx_pci_ms

Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this would be greatly appreciated.

Re: [SOLVED] Trouble mounting microSD card

Some possible causes :

- SD reader lacks a driver
lspci -k can help to determine this, please post it
Have you been able to access other things with this reader ?

- adapter can't handle this typo of Micro SD card
What adapter/reader did you use on windows & RPi ?
Can you try on archlinux with the same adapter ?

Re: [SOLVED] Trouble mounting microSD card

I haven't tried the reader on my laptop with any other SD cards, since this is the only one I have on had at the moment. I used the same adapter in all three cases. The adapter is the one which came with the microSD card. The card and adapter can be seen here.

Re: [SOLVED] Trouble mounting microSD card

Looks like it's not the MicroSD card or adapter, but the reader that's the problem.

It seems some realtek card readers don't work very well with the rtsx_pci driver.
AUR rts_bpp-dkms-git might help, though it appears to be outdated.

Re: [SOLVED] Trouble mounting microSD card

After installing the AUR package you linked to I can now succesfully mount the SD card. Thank you very much! Although it seems to be working alright, there were some error messages during the install.  It looks like package has an optional dependency on linux-headers. I'd assume installing that alongside the package would fix the errors. The reason for the optional dependency is listed as linux-headers: build modules against the Arch kernel. I am unclear as to what that means. What difference does it make to my system wheter I have the headers installed or not?

Re: [SOLVED] Trouble mounting microSD card

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dy … le_Support

Dkms needs the headers for installed kernels to be able to build succesfully for that kernel.
If you have linux-lts , you need linux-lts-headers
for linux-zen it's linux-zen-headers

Since you're using a dkms package with stock linux kernel , you should install linux-headers .
Without them, atleast one of the rts_bpp modules isn't build.

Re: [SOLVED] Trouble mounting microSD card

That makes sense. I was a bit confused about it being an optional dependency. I guess that's an attempt to express OR logic for dependencies. Thanks again!
