FS#1904 - SD-reader doesn't work on GL.iNet GL-AR750


I’m using GL.iNet GL-AR750 and OpenWrt 18.06.1 installed using official sysupgrade file:


The device has a build-in SD-reader which as I understand is based on GL857L chip. The OS doesn’t seem to see the SD-reader. When I insert a SD-card nothing is printed to dmesg, device doesn’t appear in /dev.

The following packages are installed:

opkg update
opkg install kmod-scsi-core kmod-scsi-generic \

kmod-usb-core kmod-usb-ohci kmod-usb-uhci kmod-usb2 kmod-usb3 \
kmod-fs-msdos kmod-fs-vfat kmod-fs-ext4 usbutils \
kmod-usb-storage kmod-usb-storage-extras block-mount


The device has a USB port as well and it works with USB flash drives as expected.

It could be a bug (from user’s perspective, SD-reader supposed to work) or lack of the documentation (I couldn’t figure out how to make it work, maybe I just need some extra dependencies, community forum didn’t help either).
