CFontz is the correct driver to use with CFA 634 serial, CFontzPacket
will not work.
Make sure you use the correct serial device. You need to use a 'call-out
device'. On FreeBSD these are named like '/dev/cuad0', OpenBSD uses a
similar naming. Then make sure you set the correct serial speed. The
power-on screen of the CFA 634 will tell the speed in the lower right
If you start 'LCDd' you should immediately see its start-up screen
without running 'lcdproc'.
