RE: debian/sparc serial console
You can set the 'input-device' and 'output-device' in the openBOOT to 'ttya'
for all I/O from/to serial console.
Or you can use the 'eeprom' from the command line to do these.

Subject: debian/sparc serial console
I've transitioned my Ultra 10 from my primary Desktop machine to
network server (having acquired a powerbook for my primary needs -
still trying to get Evolution compiled on that.) I would like to
access this Ultra 10 only through a serial cable & ethernet, without
monitor or keyboard. I should be able to do this through some settings
in Open Firmware right?
What do I need to set there, and what do I need to set inside linux so
that it stops pestering me about no keyboard being attached. Can I set
these open firmware variables from inside linux?
The machine is running fine right now without monitor or keyboard
attached - I can access it fine through ssh.
How do I disable X on boot?
tells me that I could try this:
update-rc.d ?dm stop 99 1 2 3 4 5 6
I'm running on testing. Would this work - I'm currently running
debian/testing on the box?
