All debug is on Serial port 2 (/dev/ttyS2) i.e. COM2 on the developer
board. Use a null modem cable and tools/sermon (default is 115200 8N1).

In th devboard_lx-R2_1_0 software you only need to change the kernel
debug port (using "make xconfig" or "make menuconfig") if you want all
debug (and serial login) to be on another port.

Best regards
