UDOO - Setting up tty on serial console port (SOLVED)

Current Beta 1 version of Volumio for UDOO send the startup logs to the serial console port, but does not support user access on it (see udoo.org/ProjectsAndTutorial … ial-cable/).

Opening a connection, however, is very simple.

Open any connection and login as root

Edit file

Change line

T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyS0 115200 vt100


#T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyS0 115200 vt100 T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttymxc1 115200 vt100

Save the file


shutdown -r 0

If you look at serial console, you’ll now see the prompt, and you will be able to login normally.

Note: that’s the main console, while you type you might see console messages popping up, with all connected side effects
However, the connection will be always available, independently from the network situation.


Thanks sergio!!! This was really helpful! (shamely admit didn’t find a way to get serial console on debug…)
This is really precious for me while developing!
