Forcing a serial console for the kernel
Is it possible to force a serial console for the install kernel
At the boot prompt defining consdev does not seem to have any affect.
The particular machine is several thousand miles away, so I do not
have access to
a floppy or cd drive.
For a kernel that I've built, if I've set the option:
Is there anything else I need to use? Shouldn't setting consdev at
prompt allow any kernel with com support to redirect to the serial
I've also looked using the new boot.cfg file and also installboot,
but there does
not see to be a well documented method for setting up serial console
