minicom problem after upgrade to Buster

Postby bluedalmatian » 2019-08-02 19:06

I normally use minicom to access the serial console on my Cisco router. Today I have tried for the first time since upgrading to buster to access it and I can only get a single character (a rectangular block) to appear when the enter key is pressed. There is no other output. The settings are the same Ive always used 9600 8N1 no soft/hard flow control.

Any ideas why this might be happening?

Thanks
