Serial console and init
I'm trying to get the serial console running smoothly on our potato
cluster. I've followed the instructions in the kernel 2.2 docs,
and I've managed to get lilo and the linux serial console device
However, I've had some trouble with init. I receive the kernel startup
messages all right, and the login also comes ok. But I can see
no output from INIT. I set the transfer rate to 38400 baud to avoid conflicts
and declared a serial console on the inittab. It seems that the
INIT should be using the /dev/console and at 38400 baud. Anyhow,
the thing is that the serial console remains inactive between
the startup of INIT and the initial login prompt. How can I fix this?
