Description Doug Chapman 2006-05-08 19:01:37 UTC
Description of problem:
When I install the latest rawhide on some of my HP Integrity (ia64) servers I
need to specify console= so that it uses the correct serial port for the console.  

I specify this on the install boot but the elilo.conf file that is created does
not contain this.  On RHEL3+4 any info I had on the append line when I booted
was copied to the insalled elilo.conf

Were you doing a serial install?

Comment 2 Doug Chapman 2006-05-09 19:48:04 UTC
correct, serial install

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-05-09 20:23:18 UTC
Did you boot with 'linux serial console=...' or how did the serial console
device get discerned?

Comment 4 Doug Chapman 2006-05-09 21:03:32 UTC
when I do the install I boot with:

     linux console=ttyS1

and the install works fine.  In RHEL3 and RHEL4 this info would then be added to
the append line of elilo.conf but in rawhide it does not. 

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2006-05-09 21:20:21 UTC
Can you try with 'linux serial console=ttyS1' instead?  

Comment 6 Doug Chapman 2006-05-10 14:55:12 UTC
tried linux serial console=ttyS1 with the same results

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2006-05-15 18:29:37 UTC
Hmmm, the code looks okay from a quick inspection.  It'll require a deeper look

Comment 8 Aron Griffis 2006-08-17 02:21:32 UTC
Doug, this report is from May and rawhide has made some good progress on ia64 in
the meantime...  can you verify this problem still exists?

Comment 9 Doug Chapman 2006-08-17 13:36:08 UTC
I have verifed this one.  Sorry, should have closed it out some time ago.
