Hey Ben. I don't use view that much but I believe
it needs 'X' to run. In fact I just tested it from
a regular console. (didn't work)
Why are you choosing not to install X?. The command
line is available from X via any number of xterm consoles,
and you can Ctrl-Alt F(n) to a number of 'real'
consoles if you want - from X.
BTW: This is slightly off-topic, but if you want
a small browser, super-fast (but doesn't support frames),
try Dillo. It is almost as fast as lynx. I use it
for browsing documentation.
