Works on dpup 484. Rolling Eyes Cool Thanks.

I'll point out for the benefit of others, that lynx handles news://
URLs, so you can connect to your newsserver and read or post
to usenet groups, whereas that other text browser, elinks does not
read news groups. (It pretends to, but actually passes the job across
to lynx, provided you have lynx available.) I have previously posted
about this on another thread somewhere.

Cause you need either libssl or the appropriate symlink.

Do it right though and go for the full score:
Code:
ldd /usr/bin/lynx

Have a look in the lynx.cfg file in /etc/lynx

Line 96 is
Code:
STARTFILE:http://lynx.isc.org/


The link is no longer valid. Just change this to an URL of your choice - or a local file.
Lynx will close if there is not a valid web address or file to open.

Any suggestions?

I have a lynx.cfg under /etc

Try opening a console and
Code:
#geany /etc/lynx. [TAB] [TAB] (tap twice the TAB key)


What happens?

My bad...

Should be /usr/etc/lynx.cfg

I downloaded the lynx pet from the Wary repo and unpacked it.

Launching from CLI with an URL will override the lynx.cfg and works as expected.

You can start lynx with
Code:
lynx /
.
I have /usr/local/etc/lynx.cfg and /usr/local/etc/lynx.lss for color setup in my Lucid 5.2.8.7, plus the small option-file /root/.lynxrc, which can save the options made when you press o in the lynx window. The files were installed at those locations, the lynx.cfg describe another path, just forget that!
The lynx.cfg file is massive, you can set up lynx to be an incredible tool! Read the manual in /usr/local/man/man.1/lynx.1 before attempting to modify it. If you don't have a good local manpage-reader, use this command to read man-pages with lynx:
Code:
man2html /usr/local/man/man1/lynx.1 | lynx -stdin


I have used lynx for many years, but mainly as a file browser; it is superfast with only the arrow keys to navigate through the hierarchy of files. You can set it up to activate other programs to read files or view graphics.
Take a look at these posts where I describe how I use lynx:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=839137#839137

One option you probably want right away, is the ability to view dot-files. You first have to activate it in lynx.cfg, to be able to set it as an option. Another sensible setting in lynx.cfg is STARTFILE, just set it to /.

Thanks for the interest
I do indeed have the /usr/etc/lynx.cfg file
I made the change to STARTFILE and lynx behaves as expected!
