I followed these instructions and I could get an install on serial console working on a pc with a serial port. How do I get it to work with a serial USB adapter? I tried/install.amd/vmlinuz loadmodules=usbserial vga=off console=ttyUSB0,115200u8 initrd=/install.amd/initrd.gz --- quiet console=ttyUSB0,115200u8
but this only gave me a black console. I have tested the serial console via USB on a running system (gettty) and verified that is works. So the cable and the USB serial adapter work. The kernel supports it. Only during installation I cannot get it to work. Does anyone have any experience with this setup? It should be pretty common because most new computers do not have a serial port.
Why would it matter what the PC has? The APU2 has a serial port, and that is still ttyS0 even if the other end is connected via USB.
