HI,

Does anyone know how to do this?

I'm trying to use the "cu" utility, but it just hangs after saying "Connected".

Anyone have any ideas?

Hi,

To connect to a console using the usb serial cable from Olimex, here is what I did :

power on the board ;
connect :
RX : red : pin 1
TX : green : pin 2
Ground : blue : pin 3
Finaly, connect the usb plug.
 
A console can now be launched on /dev/ttyUSB0
For instance if you're using a linux machine you can use minicom or screen :
screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200

You should now be able to see the boot sequence, and login as root (root is also the password)
It's a regular bash shell.
In order to quit the console you can use "ctrl-A-Z"

If you want to use the cu command have a look here: http://www.denx.de/wiki/view/DULG/SystemSetup#Section_4.2, how to configure it, you need to specify the correct serial port, else you won't receive anything, I have it working (http://www.jann.cc/2013/02/10/the_cu_command.html).
