Lynx is a text based web browser.
Install Lynx by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/etc \ --with-zlib --with-bzlib && make
Now, as the root user:
make install && make docdir=/usr/share/doc/lynx-2.8.5/lynx_doc \ helpdir=/usr/share/doc/lynx-2.8.5/lynx_help install-doc && make docdir=/usr/share/doc/lynx-2.8.5/lynx_doc \ helpdir=/usr/share/doc/lynx-2.8.5/lynx_help install-help && chgrp -v -R root /usr/share/doc/lynx-2.8.5/lynx_doc
--libdir=/etc: For some reason, the configure and make routine for Lynx uses libdir as the prefix for the configuration file. This is set to /etc so that the system wide configuration file is /etc/lynx.cfg.
--with-zlib: This enables support for linking libz into Lynx.
--with-bzlib: This enables support for linking libbz2 into Lynx.
docdir=... helpdir=...: These variables are set to avoid getting the help and documentation files installed under /etc.
--with-ssl: This enables support for linking SSL into Lynx.
--with-gnutls: This enables support for linking GnuTLS into Lynx.
chgrp -v -R root /usr/share/doc/lynx-2.8.5/lynx_doc: This command corrects the improper group ownership of installed documentation files caused if Lynx is built by any user other than root.
