Using a Compactflash Card an Thinkpad X230

Postby Loem » 2018-08-16 13:36

Hello,

I want to use a Compactflash Card on my Thinpad X320, but when I insert it nothing happen. I think it's a problem with the driver, so I searched for a driver on the internet. But I didn't found it anywhere. My Thinkpad is running with debian 9 with the last updates.


Thank you for helping me.

Check the list of PCI devices and used drivers with "lspci -k".
Check the kernel logs after inserting the card with "dmesg | tail".

Check the PCI ID with lspci -knn, and then check cateee.net kernel driver database if your kernel version supports your device.

Open terminal. Insert a cf card to slot. Then run this command:
Code: Select all
tail /var/log/messages


Might need root privileges, depending on your groups.

Post the output here.
