I am just discovering that I am too lazy. Is there a way to redirect
the operating system console to the second serial port without building
a customized kernel? In other words, without building a kernel
options CONS_OVERRIDE # Always use above! independent of boot info
in its configuration file. I know that it works if we type "consdev auto"
on the ">" prompt. Is there a way to automatically set the console
device to auto before booting? I prefer using one of the kernels
provided in the distribution if it is possible at all. As ACPI is
a real challenge on my server now, there is not a strong requirement
to build a customized kernel.
