Description Aron Griffis 2006-07-11 12:09:28 EDT
Attempted installation on serial console fails with:
No ttyS device at MMIO 0xff5e0000 for console

This was using network boot images downloaded from
download.fedora.redhat.com/.../development/ia64/os/images on 2006-07-06.

The problem is that CONFIG_PNPACPI=y needs to be specified in the kernel config.
 This is a new requirement in 2.6.17, since the acpi components were all added
to PNP, so 8250_pnp takes over hooking up the serial ports.  As a result,
CONFIG_PNPACPI=y is needed to make the serial console available.
