Please help solve #504721
 
Bcc: debian-devel

Hi,

We have recently recognized that serial console detection in the
installer is not working as expected, which resulted in RC bug
http://bugs.debian.org/504721. If you have access to a machine through
serial console, please provide debugging information which can help
with resolving this bug. The following information would be very
useful:

1. Basic information about the serial console setup (whether
machine is completely headless, etc.) and contents of
/proc/cmdline.
2. Output of 'grep -i console /var/log/dmesg' (or 'dmesg | grep -i
console' if you booted recently and boot messages have not been purged
from dmesg buffer yet).
3. If you have a chance of booting the installer on the machine,
output of 'dmesg | grep -i console' from the installer shell both
without and with the 'console=<your_serial_console_device>'
(for example, 'console=ttyS0') specified on the command line. Does
adding the option result in any changed in installer appearance?

Thanks.
