Subject2.6.25.3: serial problem (minicom)
Hi,

I have two Linux boxes connected by a null-modem cable between their serial ports; one box exports
a serial console, which the other reads using the minicom program. However, I have noticed that
minicom can no longer use the serial console when it is running on a 2.6.25.3 kernel, although it
works fine running on a 2.6.24.4 kernel.

Specifically, with minicom running on 2.6.25.3, the console does not accept keystrokes although it
does receive the boot log from the remote machine.

The serial console is being exported by a 2.6.25.3 kernel, and appears to be working correctly.

Here is the dmesg log for the kernel hosting minicom, which is using ttyS0:
