Conflict when installing `kernel-image-initramfs` to resin-jetson-tx2


We’re trying to install the kernel-image-initramfs package to our resin-jetson-tx2 layer, as in resin-beaglebone. But we’re getting a conflict because the kernel-image-image-4.4.38-l4t-r28.2+gcc8d223c40d7 package is installing another kernel Image (without initramfs).

How was this resolved for beagleboneblack?I think I need to PACKAGE_EXCLUDE something but I don’t know what.

Many thanks,


That is, the following change to resin-jetson-tx2:

Causes the error:
