Driver for Express Cards
« on: April 02, 2019, 07:41:37 am »
I have two expresscards, one with four usb 2.0 entries and one with two usb 3.0 entries. I tried to find a driver. Came to this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ExpressCard
But it does not work, following what is indicated:
Code: [Select]
elias@ZBook ~ $ /etc/default/grub
bash: /etc/default/grub: Permission denied
elias@ZBook ~ $ sudo modprobe pciehp pciehp_force=1
[sudo] password for elias:
modprobe: FATAL: Module pciehp not found in directory /lib/modules/4.15.0-46-generic
elias@ZBook ~ $ sudo modprobe acpiphp
modprobe: FATAL: Module acpiphp not found in directory /lib/modules/4.15.0-46-generic
elias@ZBook ~ $
Who can help?

You're supposed to edit the file /etc/default/grub

Code: [Select]
sudo xed /etc/default/grub

If you read the bottom of the page you linked to
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ExpressCard

it states those kernel modules are no longer required. Since Ubuntu 9.10 that functionality is compiled into the kernel .. all you should need is the kernel boot parameter adding, and updating grub.
