Re: Woody on IBM RS/6000 7025 F50


Use minicom.

You have a matrox video card in a rs6000?  Was it the one which shipped
with the box?  I didn't know
rs6k's shipped with Matrox cards.  I'm far from an expert though.

I'm trying to use a monitor and keyboard, the video card is a Matrox G200
and it works just fine with the existing old Yellow Dog installation.

OK, I've got a null modem cable right here.  Can I connect to the console
on the serial port from an Intel Linux machine (Debian woody)?  Is there
any software I must install?
