If you're at the console, you should not need a serial console unless
you are in X. If you are in X, the system can drop into kdb but there
is no way to get to the kdb prompt. However, since you didn't
see the prompt I'll assume you -are- in x. :)
You might try blindly typing "go<ENTER>" and see if your system comes back.
At this point a reboot is probably in order, but a check of
your system logs might give you a hint as to what went wrong.
