Rebol Browser 4 Command Line RedHat Install
[1/4] from: benminton:austarnet:au at: 26-Oct-2003 19:02
Hi All I recently migrated from Windows to RH 9.0 Linux but chose to perform a command line install. As I have not installed any of the X packages, I cannot install any sort of GUI type Web Browser. Although I can use Lynx, the text browser but it is very restrictive. Is it possible to use/build a small Rebol web browser of the most simple form, something to a standard of MS IE ver 3 or 4? Looking through the rebol community there are some excellent products and perhaps this issue has already been developed. I also downloaded Rebol Core & View for Linux and plan to use it above the command line linux. Looking forward to learning. Ben, Australia

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. Tim

Hi Tim Thanks for the reply. No X ... because I run an older 486 and did not have the space for the full install. Also I wanted to 'learn' Linux not just point-and-click like windows. Yes, I have Lynx. Read about Dillo yesterday. Is it a non-X browser? Was not able to discern. Cheers, Ben

nope, dillo needs X. You would probably appreciate w3m as a text-mode browser, though...
