I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 and installed the UPboard kernel like mentioned on
Now I want to use the UART pin 8 and 10 ( GPIO 14+15 ) to communicate with some other serial instruments.

Can anybody tell me how to free this pins by other processes like Getty.
These processes are using the pins I want to use for myself like I did on the Pi3.
