Console on serial line
thanks for help
I have made live USB and I boot with
"live live-getty console=ttyS0,38400n8" but still getty is not running
on serial line! Do you know how can I change inittab from squashfs?
PS: I use latest live-helper from unstable
$ LANG=C apt-cache policy live-helper
*** 1.0~a33-1 0
