Using serial terminal?
« on: November 21, 2012, 08:43:04 AM »
Can we use a serial console with piCore instead of keyboard-mouse-display? Is it available by default or a boot code needed?

Hmmm... I think I have an ADM-3A floating around somewhere from my Ampro Littleboard days.  :)  Is there a convenient way to interface the pi to legacy serial i/o hardware?

32 bit core4.7.7, Xprogs, Xorg-7.6, wbar, jwm  |  - Testing -
PPR, data persistence through filetool.sh          |  32 bit core 8.0 alpha 1
USB Flash drive, one partition, ext2, grub4dos  | Otherwise similar

Easiest way is an USB/RS-232 konverter cable or adapter, like this:
