Ah :D

I was using debootstrap. I got login prompt after I create /etc/init/hvc0.conf.

A little note though: it works ONLY if I disable PV frame buffer on
Xen config file. When I enable it, no output on frame buffer, and text
console stopped on

This behavior is similar with my previous experiment on +
busybox. I'm guessing vanilla pv_ops kernel still have problems with
PV frame buffer?
