Linux Serial Console

Good News

The console-over-serial seems to be set up by default, so you can do all the fancy POST things that you might want to do. Serial-console-over-ethernet is not set up by default and right now I don't know how to do it.

Instructions Specific to CentOS 4 the V60x

Add to /etc/grub.conf:

serial --unit=0 --speed=9600 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1
terminal --timeout=10 serial console

Add to all your kernel lines in /etc/grub.conf:

console=tty1 console=ttyS1,9600n81

If you do this, the first time you boot the OS will offer to set things up for you to work with a serial console.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
