A thread on multi-cards 2 months ago, gave me a hint on how to get usb
multi-card readers working:
Quoting "J.J. Garcia" <stigmatedbrain at gmail.com>:
"Have you tried putting it into /etc/modprobe.conf (options scsi_mod
max_luns=32) and rebuilding initrd image after that? That's the way I
was doing it so far, and it always worked for me. "
So I then had to learn how to rebuild initrd image. Turns out that is
mkinitrd (duh :-[ ).
So I added to my /etc/modprobe.conf:
options scsi_mod max_luns=8
mkinitrd -v --image-version ....
edited /boot/grub/grub.conf to use this new initrd, and now my MP3
players with internal and external SD cards are working properly.
I am ASSuMing that once modprobe.conf is altered, as I get new kernels,
the change will carry forward, and I will not have to do my own mkinitrd?
I base this on my recent update to 42.0.3 and a new initrd file.
