I am evaluating ubuntu core 12.10 (this version because of touch screen support) and I am following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Core/InstallationExample and up until the installation of the kernel everything is working (if I reuse a kernel installation from previous builds (my own builds) everything is fine) BUT when I want to install a .deb with the kernel selected from the packages list I get:

root at ubuntu:/tmp# dpkg -i --force-all linux-image-3.5.0-21-generic_3.5.0-21.32_amd64.deb
(Reading database ... 11687 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking linux-image-3.5.0-21-generic (from linux-image-3.5.0-21-generic_3.5.0-21.32_amd64.deb) ...

This kernel does not support a non-PAE CPU.

Errors were encountered while processing:

This is normal since we have no proc/cpuinfo ... how can I overrule this check on cpuinfo?

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards,
