I'm using debian-live system through a serial port with following
kernel cmdline :
boot=live live-getty [... other options...] console=tty0 console=ttyS1,115200n8
so your system should work. Which live-helper/live-initramfs versions
did you use ? If your system has also VGA output, do you have logins on
virtual consoles ?
Or perhaps your problem comes from your customization ? you could try
to add a ssh server to your live system to connect to it by net and see
what is going on...
hope it helps,
