HOW TO - Connect the serial console
#20
Currently doing this trying to get my first RockPro64 working.

With the serial console connected to my Pinebook Pro, what I had to do was,
$ stty -F /dev/ttyUSB0 1500000
$ minicom -D /dev/ttyUSB0 -b 1500000

Then all the boot messages display with no garbage at the beginning.

But, after logging in, I have to drop the speed to 115200 or else lost characters garble the output.
$ stty 115200 # this time in the terminal emulator window as a command to the remote system
and the matching config option in the terminal emulator.

Critically, the "Finish Manjaro ARM Install" script is garbled to the point of unusability until I Ctrl-C out of it and drop the tty speed to 115200. It took some time to figure out that the default baud rate was causing that.
