<p>then it means that your system is running, but didn't start a
shell on the serial console. In order to have the system start a
shell on your serial console, you have to go in the Buildroot
- configuration, <code>Target options</code>, enable <code>Generic
- serial port config</code>, and select the serial port and speed
- you would like to use for the shell. This will automatically tune
+ configuration, <code>System configuration</code>, and modify
+ <code>Port to run a getty (login prompt) on</code> and
+ <code>Baudrate to use</code> as appropriate. This will automatically tune
the <code>/etc/inittab</code> file of the generated system so that
a shell starts on the correct serial port.</p>
