I have tried to install lynx on my server running Centos 6.2 several times. I have tried by rpm, and also from scratch with ./configure , make, make install, as well as during post install in a ks script. No matter how I do it I run into the same issue, it says it's installed but when I run "lynx www.yahoo.com" it just says "HTTP/1.0 302 moved" and hangs. what am I doing wrong?
There's nothing especially wrong in that error message. It means that Yahoo is redirecting your browser from www.yahoo.com to something else. Normal website behavior.
Try waiting a little longer and pressing the space bar if nothing changes. Lynx has to download and present the new page after it gets the 302 message.
