Console problem

  Hi, 
 
   I'm having some problems to boot the Linux kernel 2.6.11.11 on a HP 
Superdome with 16 Itanium 2 processors and EFI version 1.1.  After the 
"Uncompressing Linux ... done" message appears, there is no more output 
for the console. The boot doesn't stop (I'm sending part of the 
/var/log/messages file attached to this email), but no more messages are 
printed in the console and the "login" prompt is not shown. It seems to 
be a console problem, but I'm not sure about how to fix it... When I 
boot kernel  2.4 without the "console=" option, I have a similar 
problem, no kernel output, but the "login" prompt is shown. For kernel 
2.4 the problem is solved when I specify the "console=ttyS0" argument in 
the boot process. However, the same doesn't happen for kernel 2.6. Even 
if I specify "console=ttyS0", I have no kernel output and no "login" 
prompt. I also tried "console=hcdp" but it also doesn't work. Has anyone 
experienced a similar problem which could help me solving it? 
 
  Any suggestion is welcome! 
 
  Thanks in advance, 
  Monica
