Okay, I have attached the lsmod and dmesg while booted into kubuntu 19.04.  I can see everything with this system as it is running, so let me know if there's anything else I can provide to help solve this conundrum.

Thanks

At this point if no one else has any suggestions,  I'm thinking your issue is Kernel config related or for some reason the modules we talked about earlier are not getting loaded.   Either way I'm ordering a mmc card for my notebook so I'm not doing this blind.

sdhci 
mmc_block
In theory these are the controller modules you need to load which exist but are not loaded in your system

We haven't forgotten about you :)

I just hooked into this thread by finding mention of * YUMI  *, not about screens.
My aim is to run some apps-from-the-90s; eg. poplog & mulinux.
Several of us are trying & failing to get poplog running again.
It seems, the easiest way would be to use an OLD linux installation.
So I fetched <Redhat6,2>.rar, which was popular in the 90s.
That expanded to <Rehat6.2>.iso. And a <how2> claimed that:
 `dd if=<redhat.iso> <other args> of=/dev/<USBstik!notApartn?>
would make a USBstik:Installer. Which seems absurd and failed.
Of course the MBR was destroyed ?!
Then I ran the latest YUMI on Win10.; but the GUI/Panel has 2 entries
for the <*iso> :-
1. Select which installation, and Win10 will fetch the *.iso;
2. location of *.iso in your dirTree.
I entered item 2 , of course.
The installer-progress-bar looped at  30% and searching  errorMesgs
 showed it failed to find some strangeNamed file.
Can you confirm & comment on the 2 entries to ID the *.iso ?
Either one would suffice ?
Isn't installing TC to a USBstik from the *.iso CENTRAL KNOWLEDGE
which I lack ?!

After/during a sleep I realized that the "conv=fdatasync" for the `dd` cmnd may be
essential. I found that TC [ash-based] can't do it; so I used another installation.
The resulting `dd` of the *.iso to the unPartitioned USBstik lists as a nice DirTree;
but I still can't find how to use it to boot the RedHat6.2.
With the 2 laptops: W8.1 & W10; both can't read the stik & want to reformat it.
At boot time they both show the USBstik in the menu, but jump to "PXE".
---
I'm wondering if my original TC64-ver7 was installed via a *.iso ;
and how to debug this <boot via *.iso on a USBstik> ?

It has been a few months now.  Has anyone had any luck in diagnosing the emmc issue we had been looking at before?
