Please help solve #504721

Bcc: debian-devel


We have recently recognized that serial console detection in the 
installer is not working as expected, which resulted in RC bug 
http://bugs.debian.org/504721. If you have access to a machine through 
serial console, please provide debugging information which can help 
with resolving this bug. The following information would be very 

1. Basic information about the serial console setup (whether 
machine is completely headless, etc.) and contents of 
2. Output of 'grep -i console /var/log/dmesg' (or 'dmesg | grep -i 
console' if you booted recently and boot messages have not been purged 
from dmesg buffer yet).
3. If you have a chance of booting the installer on the machine, 
output of 'dmesg | grep -i console' from the installer shell both 
without and with the 'console=<your_serial_console_device>' 
(for example, 'console=ttyS0') specified on the command line. Does 
adding the option result in any changed in installer appearance?
