the login line. But not the login prompt. So I can't to log in and
do anything.
What have I to do, to log in this headless PC?

Maksym, you need to start a getty process on the serial line, by editing /etc/ttys like this:

console none unknown off secure ttyv0 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" cons25 off secure ttyv1 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" cons25 off secure ttyv2 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" cons25 off secure ttyv3 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" cons25 off secure ttyv4 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" cons25 off secure ttyv5 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" cons25 off secure ttyv6 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" cons25 off secure ttyv7 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" cons25 off secure ttyd0 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" dialup on secure ttyd1 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" dialup off secure ttyd2 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" dialup off secure ttyd3 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" dialup off secure

In /stand/sysinstall (or /usr/sbin/sysinstall), you can edit

I'm running 5.2-CURRENT on net4801 Soekris hardware, and this
is exaclty what is needed to get login prompt on the serial

Good luck!
