yup... got my Archie working as a serial console ( after some work ) but
the HP seems not to recognize any input from the terminal ???
in the bootup hardwaretest it still uses its own HIL keyboard and if
SYS_INST is booted it doesn't do anything at all, accepts no input,
neither from the HIL nor from the terminal.
What's wrong ? Some mails ago someone mentioned about strange behavior of
the handshake lines in the HP's RS232 ... could anyone explain this a
little bit closer ?
thanks in advance...
