Same thing at the moment. I really don't remember much from the past
as I haven't used Ultrix-11 in several years. I suspect it has
something to do with number of bits and parity. May be another thing
that works once you have a non-generic kernel. I seem to remember
RS232 character characteristics changing during the boot process.
I think BSD211 has the same quirk. Of course, once you have a custom
kernel you can use a better serial card and login to that. :-)
I am hoping top get back to this soon, but at the moment I have a
house full of sick people and I am pretty much the only one still
able to moitivate.
