Re: Supermicro IPMI and shell

Hi Paul,

PDSMA+ here, with same card. Except for the kernel panic I mentioned in
#455723, it works fine.

(Haha, Debian "bug-patching": my primary e-mail address changed, a maintainer
cannot write to me, so the bug is "closed" now. :I )

The mentioned parameters on my host are:

# grep ^is /etc/inittab
is:12345:respawn:/sbin/getty -f /etc/issue.serial 19200 ttyS1 vt100
# cat /proc/cmdline
root=LABEL=root ro console=ttyS1,19200n8r console=tty0 vga=extended

Be sure to _NOT_ set up serial console for GRUB, because it won't work! Set it
up in the BIOS and then let GRUB use the default BIOS screen access calls.
