Description Stephen Hurd freebsd_committer 2014-06-16 09:21:43 UTC
I'm trying to dynamically add a uart console device (/dev/ttyu0) to the low-level console list per conscontrol(8), but always get an ENXIO error:

root@wasp:~ # conscontrol add /dev/ttyu0
conscontrol: could not add ttyu0 as a console: Device not configured

I've tried it with getty running and not running, as well as with a terminal connected and not connected with the same results in all cases.

root@wasp:~ # uname -a
