ltsp-client package fails to boot on VIA processors (VIA-EDEN, etc)

Bug #19713 reported by Scott Balneaves on 2005-08-15
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
initramfs-tools (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When booting an LTSP thin client, if the client uses a non-"686" type CPU (i.e.,
a VIA processor) client will load the kernel, but fail to run anything because
of " library not found" errors. If one boots with a "proper" 686
processor (a Celeron 733 was used in testing) it works fine.

I just want to make sure - You're buliding the initramfs on an i686, and then
booting on a via chip, right?

If yes, then I see what the problem is - I need to force it to not use the
optimised libraries, even when they're available.

Yes, that's it exactly
