Hi,
I've tried to install gentoo on my pandapoard with this tutorial:

http://dev.gentoo.org/~armin76/arm/pandaboard/install.xml

So when I connect the pandaboard to host via terminal/microcom, I see this traces:

Code:

*** Welcome to microcom (2009.06) ***
connected to /dev/ttyUSB0
Escape character: Ctrl-\
Type the escape character followed by c to get to the menu or q to quit

I don't get any further messages after that. Do I have to configure anything to get booting traces from the kernel? I want to get a console access to the target.


Thanks in advance...

I think you may need to enable the following.

Code:
Device Drivers  --->
 Graphics support  --->
  Console display driver support  --->
  <*> Framebuffer Console support

You have to boot the kernel with 'console=ttyS0' or similar.

You'd have gotten more responses, sooner, if you'd included 'pandaboard' in your title.
