Hello all,
I've cooked myself a nice Nanobsd set for my Alix 1D. I'm having issues
with serial console not showing any messages over the cable. Cable is OK.
Tried swapping the com ports and still nothing
My configs are located at
The build host is

I tried also booting without disabling VGA - system boots up, but I'm
unable to get a login prompt
I would appreciate if someone is willing to advise me where I'm wrong?
Am I removing too much software or something else?
Should I try another card?
