How to get multistrap rootfs up and running?

Hi all,

[It's my first time posting to the list so be nice :-) ]

I'm having trouble turning a multistrap rootfs (freshly baked) into a
fully configured and ready to use emdebian system.

So far I have used the sample file from "multistrap -h" and built a
rootfs for a ARM board. Then I booted my board with NFS +
init=/bin/sh. I read somwhere that I should do "dpkg --configure -a"
to get everything setup, but this is what I get:

sh-3.2# dpkg --configure -a
dpkg: failed to open package info file `/var/lib/dpkg/available' for
reading: No such file or directory

So, what is wrong here? How can I get this up and running?

I'm on Ubuntu 10.10, so my multistrap version is 2.1.6ubuntu3.

Best regards,
Bjørn Forsman
