    Booting knoppix via RS232 terminal

    Hello,

    My CPU (Intel's ATOM) does not have a VGA, only RS232.

    Is it possible to boot knoppix from RS232 ?

    Thank you,
    Z.V

    I think you have to provide more information - but if it basically means that you have only text mode available, that should in principle work fine - just use the appropriate init level. But even basic RS232 support may be scarce nowadays, not to mention using it for display??? I suggest you ask on the Debian-knoppix mailing list.

    Hello,

    I think you have to configure the bootloader to communicate via serial port. I would also suggest you add a line to /etc/inittab which enables you to login via serial port.
