[parisc-linux] Unable to open console on a 712

I am trying to boot a 712/80.

When built with ramdisk20000530-sticon.tgz and specifing sti console in
menuconfig, make dep doesn't run clean

When built with ramdisk2000530-sticon.tgx and NOT specifing sti console
in menusconfig, make dep works but  booting stops after :

        kmem_create: Forcing size work alignment -nfs_fh
        VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem)
        request_irq(538, c01bb030, 0x4000000, serial, c0289794)

At this point certain key strokes create responses
        keyb_at: K_NONE for 125                              //when
pushing page up
        keyboard: unrecognized scancode (61) - ignored
//when pushing ctrl

I can ping the 712 but I can't get the console.

Any ideas??
