Greetings everyone,

I'm trying to get my card reader running, however, there is no guide on the gentoo wiki so I tried it on my own.

I enabled and loaded the kernel modules mmc_block, sdhci-pci and rtsx_pci.

dmesg after loading the modules:
https://paste.pound-python.org/show/ADQSpe2zGzKK1Sacl8C4/
"rtsx_pci 0000:04:00.0: VPD access failed. This is likely a firmware bug on this device. Contact the card vendor for a firmware update"

Any help or online resources are welcome.

Thank you for your time.

What firmware do you need for that? I never got mine working either it would seem. Thanks

According to the kernel driver database [cateee.net] 10ec:5287 requires at least kernel 4.16.

I suspect that page is partially incorrect because rtsx_pci is also available in 4.14.44, however I just got the same message when running lspci or lshw after enabling it.

rtsx_pci may be available in earlier kernels, but the actual PCI ID is not supported.

@bifi.ftw
I suggest you are running gentoo stable, so you have installed a kernel 4.9.95 or older
so rtsx_pci is also avaiable in 4.9.95 (the latest kernel masked as stable in gentoo for) but if this is true what Jaglover says then you must use a kernel from gentoo testing
so now I hope for you, you have no nvidia card in your PC, or your nvidia card uses nvidia-drivers-396.24-r1(the latest) because if not you can not doing both
then you have to chose between the latest kernel for using your card reader, or to use the proprietary nvidia-drivers

Thank you for the number of responses.

Yes, I have linux-firmware installed and I am running the lates stable kernel (4.9.95).

Did I understand you correctly that the latest stable kernel does not support my card reader?

I'm not even sure which drivers I need to activate in the kernel, was my selection correct?

Not sure but I think your selection is correct, but your kernel does not support the Chip with this ID. So you have to unlock the testing kernel

add this to /etc/portage/package.keywords/package.keywords

Code:
sys-kernel/gentoo-sources

after this do a
Code:
emerge -uDN world

build the new kernel and hope this solves your problem

I got my reader working, in addition to needing rtsx_pci, you also need MMC_REALTEK_PCI.
