okay, I opened install/34280
for the serial issue.
(I really don't know if it is an install, kern or port-amd64.)
Is it possible for someone to make me a 3.1_RC1 install ISO with
installboot console=com1 and =com2 kernels available? It would
be a BIG help. -- I'd like to test out the new if_bge code in
3.1 while it is still a RC; network interface is my third and
hopefully last issue with these 16 opterons on 8 blades....
I think it's just a matter of taking the ISO and running
installboot to make a few extra kernels available and saving a new
isofs. Hopefully someone can do this or send me the steps, it will
take me into next week to figure out the exact process.
