Whoa,

 

Disregard previous comment about kernel version. I haven’t slept in over 24 hours, I should read more carefully.

Howdy Nick,

 

Glad to see you’ve solved your problem. 

 

Are you building things using gumstix instructions? Curiosity compels me to ask.

 

I’d build newer versions of x-loader and u-boot if I were you. Lots of things fixed since the versions you are running.  Not sure about kernel – that looks relatively ancient, surely you are not running something that old...?

Thank you very much! I totally failed initially by typing in ttyZERO2, so I figured that was wrong and was very confused.  The correct steps are:

 

1.  setenv console ttyO2,115200n8 (where the O is a capital o as in output, not zero)
2.  saveenv
3.  win

For kernel version 2.6.35+, the default console is 'ttyO2' not 'ttyS2' i.e.
setenv console ttyO2,115200n8

Your system may be booting just fine but the bootlog is getting piped
to the wrong (non-existant) serial port.
