setup_console is defined statically (sp?) in printk.c.
Here is how it is called in setup.c:
#if defined(CONFIG_SERIAL_CONSOLE) || defined(CONFIG_PROM_CONSOLE)
static int __init console_setup(char *str)I guess I am seeing the error that I would expect to see, i.e., the linker gives me an
undefined reference. Any ideas how this worked in the sgi code?
Unfortunately I am working on an embedded platform, only using this code
as a starting point for our design. If possible I would like to initialize the
console w/o the use of command line parameters.
Any insight that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
