Are you still running all of your tests with X up? You then have no chance
of getting any useful diagnostics without a serial console. Can't you switch
back to a vty while the test is running?

You will need a null modem cable. Config a kernel with serial console
support enabled. Use a fairly high speed for your console (115200). To
enable your first serial port as a console add something like the following
to your kenrel command line:

console=ttyS0,115200 console=vty0

This will retain console output on the vty too.
