I'm trying to set up a CentOS distro to output on a serial console. I went through all the steps described on this page .
My question concerns the agetty command:
exec /sbin/agetty ttyS1 19200 vt100-nav
Would it be possible to specify a dumb terminal type as the last command line option so that it only sends plain ASCII? I don't really care for vt100 escape characters, since it would complicate my parsing code on the other end of the serial connection.
