Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTS5129 Card Reader Controller

here's my .config file, I believe I have all the needed modules.

Adel Ahmed,

Lets start at the beginning.

If your card reader is a PCI device, show us
Code:
lspci
and
Code:
lspci -n

If its USB, show us lsusb.

In either case we need the device IDs.

Why do you think its a kernel problem?

Those two commands in one:
Code:
lspci -nn

Adel Ahmed,

Its a USB device.
Code:
CONFIG_MMC_REALTEK_PCI=y
# CONFIG_MMC_REALTEK_USB is not set


However, CONFIG_MMC_REALTEK_USB is hidden until MMC [=m] && MFD_RTSX_USB [=n] evaluates as true.
You have
Code:
CONFIG_MMC=y
CONFIG_MFD_RTSX_USB=y


It looks like you selected PCI but you need USB
