Well its bit of challenge for Jerome to teach me how to do a Mainframe on a PI with serial terminal. I started the project using a old HPE 700/96 terminal amber. I used this site as my prime info.

  • First is seeing if you have a serial port
    dmesg | egrep --color 'serial|ttyS'
  • Then install getty if its not there
  • Then add your config line to /etc/gettydefs
  • Then make work if you reboot.
  • The do report
  • Then you have the log in prompt on the terminal
