Though our customer support manager already repsonded to the person who posed the initial question about TimeSys Linux on the RPX-Classic, I thought that we'd forward his response to the list to help ensure that no one else experiences the same problem.

You have to change the baud rate of minicom/seyon to 115200 in order
to see the login prompt. Also, flow control needs to be turned off.

Note: the default rate for the boot monitor on this board is 9600.

FYI - All of our TimeSys Linux GPL kernels are free to download.
However, we do have support packages that customers can purchase
for these products. To find out more information on our GPL support
packages go to :
