I have a minimalistic buildroot build on RPi2 and I was using the serial on PuTTY (UART pins connected via USB) to log in as root. However, I don't see an login prompt on my monitor when I connect using HDMI. I know the HDMI port is up because I see my monitor wake up from sleep (indicated by monitor's LED).
root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootwait console=tty1,115200 console=ttyAMA0,115200 quiet logo.nologo loglevel=1

The pertinent lines in my
# Put a getty on the serial port console::respawn:/sbin/getty -L console 0 vt100 # GENERIC_SERIAL tty1::respawn:/sbin/getty -L tty1 0 vt100 # HDMI console
What place else should I look into? Any help is much appreciated!
