Hi, I need to configure f11 to redirect output to the serial port.

I looked at the inittab which doesn't look like the right file to edit.

btw i have run level 3 and no x already.

that is one hell of a howto

the problem is, on fedora the inittab is not standard anymore.

the instructions i have say to rem out the tty1 .... and add ttyS0
but nothing exists like that in fedora - at least i haven't found it.

# Run gettys in standard runlevels
#1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1
#2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2
#3:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty3
#4:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty4
#5:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty5
#6:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty6
S0:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty ttyS0 19200

Try this:


Note the difference between the serial console lines in each example, and the necessary changes to /boot/grub.conf for monitoring the boot process through the serical console.
