jayjo_I'm trying to install ubuntu server onto a small machine, but I only have a wireless usb keyboard available. The keyboard doesn't seem responsive. I also have a COM to USB port - can I connect to a terminal with screen on my main machine and install from there?19:59
sarnoldjayjo_: try adding something like console=ttyS0,9600 console=tty0 https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/admin-guide/serial-console.html20:05
RoyKsarnold: you probably should run a getty on that serial port as well20:14
sarnoldRoyK: can you do that from the installer? I haven't got a clue if serial console 'works' for installing these days; I hoped this would 'just work', you know? :)20:16
tomreynsomeone whose first name is mark filed a bug about serial console support being complicated around 18.04, and i think it got improved since. haven't gotten around to try, yet, though.20:25
RoyKsarnold: never done it from the installer - dunno20:25
RoyKsarnold: but the console won't normally start a getty, just spit out kernel messages20:26

jayjo_I can access the serial port OK on the machine through the bios and through selecting "Install Ubuntu Server" but that's as far as it goes. I think I'll have to go source a wired USB keyboard.21:55
sarnoldjayjo_: bugger :( thanks for reporting back21:55
sarnoldjayjo_: it might be worth a bug report, though, since I think we thought this was supposed to work21:55
