Login over serial is controlled by files in /etc/events.d

If your serial connection is defined as the primary console (usually
through a console= argument on the kernel boot line),
then /etc/events.d/serial should detect this and offer a login on that
line. Otherwise, copy one of the existing ttyX scripts and modify it:

  cp /etc/events.d/tty1 /etc/events.d/ttyS0 # or whatever the port is

Then change the mingetty to an agetty command, with appropriate
arguments for serial port speed and so forth, perhaps something like:

  /sbin/agetty -L 115200 ttyS0


  /sbin/agetty-L 9600 ttyS1

...depending on the particular port you're using.

I'm unclear from your e-mail -- if the problem is that you're seeing the
login prompt but can't type anything, check to make sure that hardware
flow control is disabled in minicom.
