[RESOLVED] Step missing from Goflex Net install guide

In the install guide for the Goflex Net it has portions where you use Jeff Doozan's UBIT tools but it doesn't say anything about installing CPIO before it. Every time I've tried to use ubit_start it simply will not work until after cpio has been installed and every time I've installed Arch it hasn't been a package installed from the very beginning. Just figured it might help someone out at some point.

Hi!

On the installation page in the First reboot section you can read:

Install a package needed by the rescue system:
pacman -Sy cpio

It says that in the first reboot section, the section to use ubit_start is before that. Ubit_start will not function without cpio installed, it returns with:

Code: Select all
No installed UBIT ramdisk could be found.
'ubit_start' needs to be run from the directory containing the UBIT ramdisk
or on a system with a UBIT ramdisk installed either at '/boot/uInitrd' or in
   echo a UBIFS partition named 'fast', 'silent' or 'ramdisk'

The install guide is for unadulterated GFNs, and in that situation the guide works perfectly.

I see. I think I might have had ubit 0.3 when I used the guide, so that makes sense.
