I am trying to get an older Via Epia motherboard to pxe boot as a media director. I have been able to get around the 686 bug by installing a 386 kernel on the core.
Before installing the 386 whenever I would define a new media director and pxe boot the epia it would reboot once it loaded the kernel.
By installing a 386 kernel on the core I am now able to pxe boot fine (since a 386 kernel is passed over pxe boot) and the activation script starts to do its thing. I keep getting errors when the ConfirmDependencies_Debian.sh script tries to install the kernel-image-126.96.36.199-vanilla-pluto-1-686 package. It complains about stale NFS handles, but I don't think it's worth figuring out why it is failing. I do not even want the kernel-image-188.8.131.52-vanilla-pluto-1-686 package to install on this media director.
Can someone tell me where in the scripts or what method to use in order to suppress the installation of this kernel?
I tried to hold my kernel in dpkg but that did not do the trick. Any other ideas?
