Memory stick media slot not functional on a Sony Vaio VGN-FS790B
Last modified: 2008-01-19 23:39:12 EST
Description of problem:
Memory stick media slot not functional on a Sony Vaio VGN-FS790B. It is
difficult to tell what's going on, but I note that it looks like lspci has no
idea how to handle it (I can't figure out what other thing it might be, as
everything else I'm aware of on this machine is detected correctly):
06:03.3 Mass storage controller: <pci_lookup_name: buffer too small>
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a Sony Vaio VGN-FS790B with FC5 GOLD installed on it
2. Get a Memory stick Pro, and insert it into the slot
Nothing shows up in dmesg or /var/log/messages indicating that the kernel even
Should be noticed by the kernel.
More accurately, it was a 128mb mem stick in the mem stick pro reader.
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.
Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5
have reported that installing a kernel update has left their
systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed. See bug 207474 for further details.
If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the
release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613.
If this bug has been fixed, but you are now experiencing a different
problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem.
