Serial console can be extremely convenient if you need to access your imx28-board when it is not connected to a monitor and network remote access is not available.

If you intend to use the serial port for a software application running on the IMX28- board, there is a bit of configuration required to disable the console from using this port. By default, the serial port is configured as a console port for interacting with the Linux os shell. The following steps will guide you through disabling the port from console access.

Step1: while passing bootargs env variable to uboot, edit console parameter from “console=ttymxc1” to “console=tty1”

Step 2:

--> if you are usnig Buildroot, openembedded, yocto, Debian based root filesystem means comment following line in “etc/inittab” file,

T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttymxc1 115200 vt100


--> if you are using ltib based root file system means add following lines at starting line in “etc/rc.d/rc_mxc.S” file,


if grep -sq tty1 /proc/cmdline; then

      /sbin/getty -L tty1 115200 vt100

fi



Thanks & Regards,
