QEMU output through minicom

I'm booting a kernel through KVM/QEMU, and I would like to view the output with minicom (vnc/sdl don't allow scrolling, cut/paste etc).

I have no idea how to do this. The kvm man file says it can redirect output to a specified "chardev", including tty and pts.

I've tried:
-chardev tty,id=dummy,path=/dev/ttyS0

but minicom didn't display any output when I set "port /dev/ttyS0" in my .minirc.dfl. This COULD be because of erroneous minicom settings (baud rate, stop bits, etc).

Anyone have any experience setting this up?

(PS I know my kernel boots, because the output is fine when I connect via vnc)


minicom, output, pts, qemu, tty
