command line browser

Jump to solution

I am searching for a command line browser, to use in a terminal on a system without GUI. I know of several in other linux distributions (lynx, elinks, links) but a 'dnf search' didn't yield anything useful. I would like to use a packaged solution, without having to resort to building from source. Does anybody have any suggestions?

In RHEL 8 ? Enable the CodeReady repo and install one of the available browsers :

[root@servera ~]# subscription-manager repos --enable=codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms
Repository 'codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms' is enabled for this system.
[root@servera ~]# yum install lynx
Installing:
lynx x86_64 2.8.9-2.el8 codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms 1.6 M

I have no idea how you figured this out, but kudos my friend. I have been googling and searching for something like this for some time now as I am restricted to base and appstream at work as well as codeready. This is perfect. Thank you.

We have a package browser/finder at:

https://access.redhat.com/downloads/content/package-browser

 

For what is worth, we now have 'lynx' as a part of RHEL9 Appstream

elinks used to be my go-to in the RHEL6/7 era, but it seems it's no longer available through the default repos.
