Subject: [gentoo-dev] [RFC] Changing default serial-console definition in inittab
Date: Fri, 27 Apr 2012 17:31:00
1 Since I've been configuring a couple of systems lately for remote
2 access, which include configuring the serial console, I'm wondering if
3 it would be a good idea to change our inittab so that the default
4 (commented out) definition of the serial consoles is a bit more.. modern.
6 The current definition sets the console at 9600 baud, using vt100
7 emulation; I think most of us who configure it, do so at 115200 baud,
8 and some prefer vt-utf8 over vt100 (the two are partially compatible as
9 far as I can tell).
11 Of the two systems I've configured ­– a SuperMicro server which is the
12 new tinderbox host, and an HP for work – both have the default IPMI
13 configuration for Serial-over-LAN set at 115200, and the HP also had
14 VT-UTF8 by default for emulation (SuperMicro defaulted to vt100 but
15 still allows utf8).
