display boot process to LCD..


Hello.. I have hooked up a matrixorb bvl202-a to my system, I'd also like to see the boot stuff on this lcd screen. (for example "Starting console mouse services [ok]") is this possible?

A quick google didn't find any info on this LCD. Can you post a website or info?

How does it connect to the PC?

heh i spelled it wrong
heres the link.
http://matrixorbital.com/pages/produ...4&ProductID=72
i didnt think the model would be necessary so i didnt post link before.
I changed the

*.kernel /dev/console
to
*.kernel /dev/ttyS0
in the /etc/syslogd.conf
and now at boot i see lots of gibrrish being output to the screen, still cant get all the data in human readable form.
Thx
Rohan

http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Remote-Ser...ader-lilo.html
in short, put
serial=ttyS1,9600
console=ttyS1,9600
or something like that
