Well, I seem to have gotten the serial working, thanks to that point in the right direction. I was wiring up the serial header in quite the wrong way. I have a new problem now though. I have no HDMI cables, and thus have no way to see the display. Anybody know of any way to set it to use S-Video on the new kernels?
Also, how do I reply from the groups page. It took me like 4 hours to figure out that I might be able to do it via email, but I still want to be able to post from the site instead.
