Default Cant install anything after fresh install

Hi,

I just finished installing 6.2 using usb drive.

After installation when I try to install any package it says not found.

What am I missing here ?

Without nano I cant even modify the /etc/installurl

1. If you had done a network installation, rather than an installation from disk, then /etc/installurl would have been created for you.

2. The OS comes with 4 built-in editors: vi(1), mg(1), sed(1), and ed(1). Learning vi or mg would probably be helpful.

3. You can manually create an /etc/installurl file, without an editor, by using echo(1) and redirecting the output to the file.
Code:
# echo http://your.nearest.mirror.site/pub/OpenBSD > /etc/installurl
4. You can also create a $PKG_PATH environment variable for use with pkg_add(1). However, this is not used with syspatch(8), which only uses /etc/installurl.

No need for nano, as all ready mentioned ,vi , ed ,etc....
The 'echo' command is a new one to me, never thought of using it that way, thanks jggimi,

So many ways to accomplish something, I used the 'cat' command myself,
Code:
man cat
Code:
cat > /etc/installurl
http://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD
ctrl-d to exit/end and save the file

I had to setup a $PKG_PATH environment variable then after adding xfce added url to
/etc/installurl.
