I feel like an idiot right now because I can just not figure out how to make $subject work on a -CURRENT system. :(
I've read through the Handbook chapter on this. I've done the process I've used with 8.x systems. But once the kernel loads, the serial console stops working. I'm obviously missing a step somewhere. Here's what I've done. Please point out my error(s): /boot/loader.conf: hint.uart.0.disabled="0" hint.uart.0.flags="0x30" console="comconsole vidconsole" comconsole_speed="115200" boot_multicons="yes" /etc/make.conf: BOOT_COMCONSOLE_PORT=0x3F8 BOOT_COMCONSOLE_SPEED=115200 /etc/ttys: ttyu0 "/usr/libexec/getty std.115200" vt100 on secure Then I rebuilt the boot code via: cd /usr/src/sys/boot make cleandepend; make depend; make; make install And I loaded the new boot code into the GPT via: gpart bootcode -p /boot/gptboot -i 1 ada0 This motherboard (SuperMicro H8DGi-F) includes an IPMI-enabled serial-over-LAN setup, including a KVM-over-LAN. The KVM-over-LAN uses a virtual onscreen keyboard, though, so it's a pain to use, which is why I'm trying to get the serial console stuff working. The BIOS is configured to use COM3 for the remote access setup. The kernel detects this as uart0, and dmesg shows it as being detect and set as "uart0: console (115200,n,8,12). The serial console works at the boot loader screens and I can drop to a loader prompt, type away, etc. As soon as I type "boot" and the kernel loads ... the serial console dies.
