The new 2.6.24 linux-openmoko kernel is not able to access the SD card 
in my GTA01. The card is a 2G Kingston and it works fine under 
With the new kernel:

root at fic-gta01:~$ fdisk -l /dev/mmcblk0

Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 2013 MB, 2013265920 bytes
4 heads, 16 sectors/track, 61440 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 64 * 512 = 32768 bytes

Disk /dev/mmcblk0 doesn't contain a valid partition table

When the phone first boots there are lots of messages similar to the 
above. I don't have my debug board hooked up at the moment so I don't 
have the early log messages. The 'dmesg' output just after the phone has 
booted is at .

My specific kernel is "uImage-2.6.24+svnr4012-r3950-r1-neo1973.bin" 
(which BTW looks a bit odd with both the "r4012" and "r3950" numbers).
