Kernel 2.2.x serial console problems
Actually, this is a problem AFAIK with the 2.2.x and 2.1.later kernel
series. On my SS LX, keboardless and monitorless, I have a serial
console, from which I can watch all of the wonderful booting happenings of
the machine, and on 2.0.35 (fresh slink install), will boot and operate
After tossing in the STOCK debian 2.2.1 pkg, I get the following on
bootup, after a normal start of the kernel, as soon as it goes multiuser:
zs_open ttyS0, tty overwrite
Which is repeated ad nauseum, and at which point if I press a key, the
kernel opps'es at me.
This also has happened on a freshly compiled 2.2.6 kernel, as well as a
2.1.125 kernel image.
HELP. I really don't want, or need, a monitor or kebd on this thing, and
I am at a loss as to what the problem is...
All inittabs are stock, this is a clean install, with the exception of the
2.2.1 pkg installed.
I have noticed that this problem has been mentioned before, but with no
previous replies. Maybe this time we can tear through this???
