help using serial console w/ netboot - SOLVED
 
Turns out that the remote serial-over-ip terminal redirects COM3, and
shows up as ttys2, which makes this




debian-installer/i386/boot-screens/txt.cfg:
append vga=788 inited=debian-installer/i386/initrd.gz --
console=ttyS0,19200 earlyprint=serial,ttyS0,19200


turn into this:
append vga=788 inited=debian-installer/i386/initrd.gz --
console=ttyS2,19200 earlyprint=serial,ttyS2,19200

Now all seems to be working.

Thanks folks.

Miles

Ahh! OOPs didn't read whole thread.

Still, it does show the reason why you should copy 'n' paste instead of
laboriously typing it out by hand.

Yeah. I've since spent the effort to find out how to cut and paste in
plain vanilla tmux.
