That will make you boot time longer. Because the com2 only need to set
to 19200.

Hi there,

It seems COM2 is disabled by default in the s2881/Config.lb file. Since
board has a COM2 connector, and it is what you would use with the IPMI
daughter card, would it make sense to enable it by default?

I've got IPMI console redirection working by letting FILO 0.5 (in grub
and the kernel talk to COM2 instead of COM1. COM2 is connected to the
card. With the latest ipmitool snapshot
(http://ipmitool.sourceforge.net/snapshot/), that gives me have a serial
console over the network without extra hardware (other than the IPMI

Pretty brilliant!
