User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (Windows NT 5.0; U)
Description of problem:
After booting the install CD with console=ttyS0, and perfoming an installation with the serial line,
the attempting to boot the installed disk:
>>>b dkao -fl i
aboot> b 1/vmlinuz-2.4.9-14a root=/dev/sda2 console=ttyS0
... the system disk boots, things startup until:
Starting anaconds [OK]
Starting atd [OK]
hangs after the starting atd.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install on system without graphics card (e.g. DS20L) - Have to boot manually, until aboot options fixed on CD and target disk
>>> b dqa0 -fl i
aboot> ... console=ttyS0
2. perform install, boot the hard disk (as per above)
Actual Results: On booting, some programs are started, but
system hangs, after atd [OK]
Expected Results: System to come up
The system doesn't hang. The problem is that there is no inittab entry for
ttyS0. Fixed in upcoming release.
As a work-around. Do the following:
1- Boot in single user mode.
2- Add the following entry to /etc/inittab:
7:2345:respawn:/sbin/mgetty -r -s 9600 ttyS0
This is already documented in #58738.
