Getting started via serial line connection
I've got my fine E250 machine, but run in trouble before thinking about
There is no graphics card in the machine and I have to connect via
serial line. I found a searial cable which I used to connect a laptop
with a desktop years ago and adapted it via gender-changer and
25pin to 9 pin adapter to a Linux laptop. There I started minicom.
But after switching on the E250 server I can't see anything on my
laptop minicom terminal. Is there any document to read or any starting
help. I really don't know what is installed in the Sun and I'm
looking for a way to get the console output.
Another way would be to insert a graphics card. I've found a PC
Matrox G200 card in our shelf but don't know if it works.
Any hint how to start up with this beast is really welcome.
