No serial console login prompt after kernel boots.

I have built a linux 3.7-rc1 kernel and file system using buildroot for my mx28evk board, and the kernel seems to load and boot successfully.


However, I never get a login prompt at the serial console :


[3.700000]  host=freescale, domain=, nis-domain=(none)
[3.700000]  bootserver=, rootserver=, rootpath=
[3.710000] ALSA device list:
[3.710000]   #0: mxs_sgtl5000
[5.750000] VFS: Mounted root (nfs filesystem) on device 0:11.
[5.750000] Freeing init memory: 136K

Starting logging: OK

Starting rsyslog daemon: OK

Starting network...

ip: RTNETLINK answers: File exists

Normally at this point I would expect to see a login prompt, but I am seeing nothing.

I am using buildroot to build everything and believe I have set everything to configure a serial console on ttyAMA0 .

Has anyone run into this and give me some hints as to what I might look at to get a serial console login prompt working ?

Thanks for any help.
