I'm trying to netboot a diskless VIA EPIA-M board.  I configured DHCP and
NFS and the VIA loads a kernel, mounts the root filesystem and continues
the boot.  However, the system hangs when trying to kvm_mkdb.  On the NFS
server, I can see

-rw-r--r--  1 root    wheel       0 Apr  8 14:30 kvm.db.tmp

but after that, nothing happens.

Any ideas?
