2011-01-13 07:12:55     Disabling Uart0 as console

Hello world,


I am trying to diasble the uart 0 console by giving the command "set console = null" during the u-boot.


I also disabled the Console on Blackfin serial port in the make menuconfig.


I want to use the uart0 (not as console) in my kernel application.But i dont see any communication happening through uart 0.Am I going in correct way?


I also referred   docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=silent_booting

"set console = null" doesnt make sense.  "console" is not a u-boot variable, it is a setting or the kernel command line.
