What are you using for init? Is it busybox by chance. If so there was a
bug in a past version that would cause this. It had to do with not setting
CREAD properly I believe.

Subject: linux on keyboardless system
I'm tried booting linux 2.4.3 on my prototype system which does not have
a keyboard and a monitor. I used the uart as my serial device and passed on
the console=ttyS0(com1 in my pc) to the kernel. I can see the shell prompt
after the kernel
bootup but not able to enter anything after that.
So how can I use my pc keyboard to send characters to my uart?
I think I'm missing something here.
Can anyone give me some hint?
Thankyou in advance...
