Is it possible to tell bitbake to skip steps, specifically,
"do_package", without altering the recipes themselves? I think this
would be easy in a normal recipe(maybe using -c compile?), but on my
setup, certain "metarecipes" like omap3-console-image just "compile"
themselves and its dependencies, which are also "metarecipes", like
task-boot and task-base, for example.
The reason why I want to skip this step is that I'm building over a NFS
volume, while it works fine for the most part, certain packages fail at
do_package, and require me to go to the server and continue the bitbake
procedure from there, because do_package completes successfully there. I
use "mount.nfs <IP of host system>:/<Path to share> <Mount point>" to
mount the share.
The error looks like this: (This is just a example, the package may
