wierd console loader issue on nanobsd alix

(1/5) > >>

i have this issue since 2.2.2 and so far now on 2.2.3 it still persists. When the alix boots, the loader provides the option to select slice and then the 5 second counter to press enter or goto shell, for me during those 2 stages my serial console will just display the info but wont let me input anything, i have tried almost 4 different serial to usb adapters and 2 serial cables but nothing helps, the console starts taking inputs once its booted completely after which there r no such input issues at all. I even tried a clean install thinking the loader might be broken during upgrade but that too doesnt help making the slice selection impossible to use

This the same ancient ALIX you've had serial console issues with forever? IIRC it seemed like that ALIX was just broken, or else your client's serial console was.

ys same issue but i suffer the same on multiple alixes so it cant be all broke and that too y just the slice selection and press enter to boot only, rest everything works fine.

the reboot hang issue was a due to a fake Chinese chip in the adapter which was leaking signal back from transmit to receive lines so i found another adapter with a genuine chip and that reboot hang issue resolved

In that case, likely the latter - your serial console isn't working. Which specific ALIX is this?

alix 2d3 and 2d13.

y is it that multiple alix broke all at the same time all at different locations and using different serial to usb adapters to connect to PC
