Hi,

i do not understand why the installer does not provide a getty on ttyS0.

Can somebody explain why this is the case?

Would some developer want to change that?

As far as i understand runit, the only thing which has to be done is to
copy the correct file into the correct directory.

A serial console for the installer would allow for installations via serial
console, which is sometimes the only. I want to start with void linux
but this makes it impossible for me right now.

BR

This is on my TODO, but I didn't yet get around it.

You can just install Void manuall from any other Linux distribution
that speaks to ttyS0 already. ;)

Or create an image with ttyS0 enabled. This worked 2 years ago and
likely still does: https://gist.github.com/ebfe/d536e92a6744153da2e7#file-void-ttys0-enabled-sh

Come to think of it, hrmpf supports serial console already. ;)
