[Barrelfish-users] M5 bi-directional serial console

I've never tried this... I don't think that the menu.lst.m5 file starts the serial domain, and I guess that Fish relies on this for bi-directional use?  

I tried to slim down menu.lst.m5 as far as possible because (i) running things on the simulated machine is slow, and (ii) interactions with different devices were the usual place where I ran into differences between how barreflish exercises the devices, and how M5 models them.  (e.g., I never looked at the PCI domain at all).

I've normally run experiments directly from menu.lst.m5 -- is that possible for you?

Is there a way to get a bi-directional serial terminal in m5 for barrelfish?

I've tried telnet, m5term and socat to no avail. I do get all output but can't find a way to input commands. Specifically, I do not even see the shell, although fish and all other necessary modules are spawned normally.

Thanks in advance,
