Installing Graphical User Interface Fails

tuaris
I downloaded the amd64 ISO image from UK Mirror and went through the installation without any trouble using the most basic/common selections.

System boots up normally, no trouble, gets IP address, setup reporting.

I then get asked "Do you with to enable a graphical environment? (yes or no)".  I type in yes and press enter.  The next thing on the screen is "mport: Package midnightbsd-desktop not found in the index.".  After that it says to reboot t0 enable graphical login, which is probably not correct since the installation failed.

Screenshot below:

yes, there was a typo in the firstboot startup script. It has been corrected and will be fixed in the next ISO update.

You can manually run mport install midnightbsd-desktop (note the spelling error on the screen)

We also have a video up on youtube of what you need to do to get it working right now.
