I've been trying to get the serial console running on a headless box. I've followed the steps in these directions for "Karmic and newer:

Perhaps the instructions are incomplete or incorrect. I have been able to get other distros to work over serial on the same hardware.

The machine seems to boot, but there is no way for me to connect, the serial port goes dead just at the point where I should be seeing output from Grub. Any corrections or insight would be appreciated.
