When I boot my plug and watch the boot process via 'cu', u-boot is fine, but as soon as it loads the kernel, it shows only gibberish.

This is a new plug, which I am in the process of setting up.  I am using the kernel image from the sheeva installer.

Here is my current bootargs and bootcmd:

bootargs=console=ttyS0,115200 mtdparts=orion_nand:0x400000@0x100000(uImage),0x1fb00000@0x500000(rootfs) ubi.mtd=1 root=ubi0:rootfs rootfstype=ubifs
bootcmd=nand read.e 0x00800000 0x00100000 0x00400000; bootm 0x00800000

The system itself is working, and it appears that the console is not being set correctly.  Although it is clearly passing the correct console= information.  I verified this from many sources.

Has anyone else come across this issue and knows of a resolution?  Thanks.

Still no reply on this?  I tried again to see if I can figure out what the heck is happening, but still can't.
This issue appears to be the same as mine: http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=6068.0

I tried to connect using all the known baud rates, and none of them provided a readable console.
I used the SheevaPlug installer, and the kernel provided with it, if that means anything.

I plan on flashing the most recent kernel to see if that resolves the issue.

Linux seems to boot just fine, as it seems, just the console output doesn't seem to be working. Sad
