    Hello all,

    is there any issue with the latest Kernel 4.19.57+ and raspbian or is something broken?

    I'm trying to get any output from /dev/serial0 with no luck.

    dmesg has following output:

    root@zero1:/home/pi# dmesg |grep "tty\|serial\|uart"
    [ 0.000000] Kernel command line: coherent_pool=1M 8250.nr_uarts=1 bcm2708_fb.fbwidth=720 bcm2708_fb.fbheight=480 bcm2708_fb.fbswap=1 smsc95xx.macaddr=B8:27:EB:2D:61:BD vc_mem.mem_base=0x1ec00000 vc_mem.mem_size=0x20000000 dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=tty1 root=PARTUUID=c42d34aa-02 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait quiet splash plymouth.ignore-serial-consoles

    [ 92.958784] uart-pl011 20201000.serial: no DMA platform data

    The Fix LED is blinking orange. I`m using your external antenna with switch position "ext".

    If I try to run a "cat /dev/serial0" it hangs forever until I press ^C.

    The config.txt parameters are:

    core_freq=250
    disable_overscan=1
    dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt
    dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d
    dtparam=audio=on
    dtparam=i2c1=on
    dtparam=i2c_arm=on
    dtparam=spi=on
    enable_uart=1
    force_turbo=1
    gpu_mem=128
    max_framebuffers=2
    over_voltage=4
    start_x=1

    Thank you in advance.

    Here are some things to try;
    See if it works with minicom;
    minicom -b 9600 -o -D /dev/serial0

    Try and reset GPS module; (may need to kill gpsd with 'sudo killall gpsd')
    gpsctl -f -t u-blox -x '\x06\x04\xff\xff\x02\x00' /dev/serial0

    Check if you console works;
    1. on the Pi, connect TX to RX with a jumper cable.
    2. start minicom minicom -b 9600 -o -D /dev/serial0
    3. type some characters, if you see them on the screen then your console is working.

    I tested the first two already.

    Minicom does not show anything and the gpsctl command hangs too.

    The last test with the jumper between Rx/Tx is showing me my chars what I typing.

    This meens the console is working.

    Regards
