Hi Pablo,

 

I have a problem with this kext.

I have a e4310 which has the same card reader.

The kext is recognised properly but if I boot mountain lion ( 10.8.5 ) with a card in the card reader

I get the still waiting for boot device and if I try to insert a card after boot system hangs.

 

Any ideas?

 

Best regards,

voidRunner

Hi voidRunner,

 

Try to insert the sd card after the boot process completes, when you have desktop available.

 

But before you insert, check if the kext is loaded. You can check it following instructions in the Troubleshooting session of the main guide.

 

Let me know what you had.

 

Cheers!

Hi Pablo,

 

Yes the kext loads but the system hangs when I try to insert an sdcard the system hangs.

Below is the system.log when the kext loads.

Is this normal?

Hi voidRunner,

 

Yes, this is normal! I have the same output from the kext in the /var/log/system.log file.

 

Please, let us know the output of the following commands:

 

1. Inside the /System/Library/Extensions directory, execute:

          kextlibs -undef-symbols VoodooSDHC.kext

 

2. Inside the /System/Library/Extensions directory, execute:

     grep -A3 IONameMatch VoodooSDHC.kext/Contents/Info.plist

 

3. Grab the Vendor and Device IDs:

     lspci -nn | grep SD

 

4. Start the machine without the SD card inserted, wait for the desktop to load completely, then open a terminal and execute:

     tail -f /var/log/system.log

 

    4.1. Insert the SD card in the card reader:

    4.2. Collect and send the output of the /var/log/system.log after the insertion of the SD card.

 

 

Let's start with this information and see what we have.

 

Cheers!

Hi Pablo,

 

Sorry for taking so long to reply.

Unfortunately as i've told you as soon as i try to insert the SD card the entire system freezes so i see no output from card insertion.

 

Can you send me your dsdt block for the sdcard reader.

Maybe it has something to do with that.

 

Thanx,

voidRunner

Hi Pablo,

 

Please bear with me.

 

Can you please explain how to go about your instruction in 1 and 2? Are these to be executed using Terminal? I have no idea how to do those steps.

 

Thank you!

Yes, all running from the terminal. Mainly this to get the dev/ven ID for your card reader.

 lspci -nn | grep SD

That means to run from that directory. You have to install voodooSDCH already and in that directory.

 

cd /system/library/extensions

run the command
