I was trying to get the PROM console working so I wouldn't have to use
the hacked-together serial cord and a separate box to run SGI-linux on the
indigo2 [because I somehow doubt a GU1-EXTREME driver will suddenly
In any case first I had to move CONFIG_SGI_PROM_CONSOLE in
./arch/mips/Config.in .... for some reason it was only given as an option
if you said you had a DECstation.
I finally got it so it would be compiled and linked into the kernel,
and for its symbols to show up in System.map, but I
can't figure out how to get it to output to the screen of the INDIGO2. I
can read /dev/tty0 and get keyboard input to show up, but nothing
shows up if I do a cat > /dev/tty0.
Does anyone know exactly how to get it to work?
