Re: Mysterious Message
Setting up a serial console would be a challenge because the motherboard has no serial port. Before trying to find out whether I can get Linux to treat a USB port as a serial console, I figured I'd get the machine on the network and wait for a hang to learn more.
The hang took several days to recur, but now it is hung, and it appears the machine is completely wedged as I suspected. It does not respond to ping, much less ssh. I believe, therefore, that hookup up a serial console is probably pointless, since no processes appear to be getting any CPU.
I'm thinking that perhaps my next step should be to try the new Beta 169.04 driver. Do you agree?
