I just received my odyssey x86 today and installed pfsense on a hard drive. It has been booting fine but I wanted to enable a serial connection to the uart for remote tty and watching it boot up. I have a max3232 that I’ve tested with raspberry pi machines different Linux system and it worked well. I figured I’d give it a go with this pfsense box as well. I can’t figure out how to enable the uart as dmesg doesn’t show it load but I have the settings in /boot/loader.conf to enable it.
boot_multicons="YES" boot_serial="YES" console="comconsole,efi" comconsole_speed="115200"
I see the ttyu0 in the ttys
ttyu0 "/usr/libexec/getty al.3wire" vt100 onifconsole secure
I’m using pins 1,6,8,10 the same as my pi. I also tried the 4 pins that have the red dashed line labeled UART in the pinout diagram? Has anyone else been able to get console tty access via a uart tx/rx?
I may try installing Linux next and testing there as I’m not used to BSD as much.
