Serial Console
« on: November 16, 2009, 04:22:50 AM »
Hi,
In order to find out the correct settings for the 2.6.31 kernel, I was trying to get hands on the Serial Console of the mipsbook. My version unfortunately lacked such a fancy connector, so I have to add my own. The wikipage already describes the pin layout, but my question is where to start counting (I don't have a multimeter)
thank you

Apparently, there are some mips netbooks floating around with a 2.6.x kernel
