FWIW, I do lots of serial consoles. Biggest issue I have is the boot.config options. Personally, the switches to "detect" (-P) and "switch" (-h) don't always seem to work (for me). If I have to see anything at the console, not only do I setup /boot/loader.conf but I will always use -D in /boot.config -- Dual setup. It pushes to both COM1 and VGA. Please try that. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
