syslinux.cfg serial console does not work in 1.9
Tested on alpine-1.9.0_alpha18.iso.
, alpine boots successfully (no call trace). However, the serial console does not work; it seems /etc/inittab is not automatically updated with the getty for the serial console to run. I tried manually running the serial console (vi /etc/inittab; kill -HUP 1), but there was no serial console. Running screen I am not able to use the serial port at all.
However, if I remove
, the serial console can be used normally. Although /etc/inittab can be used in a committed apkovl to start the serial console, the boot messages are not displayed to the serial port in that configuration.
I can attach a dmesg if it may be helpful.
