I'm working on Oracle Linux as a de velopment machine. I'm looking for a web browser, but I can't seem to find them:

$ rpm -qa | grep -i web
pywebkitgtk-1.1.6-3.el6.x86_64
webkitgtk-1.2.6-5.el6.x86_64
kurdit-unikurd-web-fonts-20020502-6.el6.noarch
$ rpm -qa | grep -i browser
$

I tried to install Chrome, Chromium, Opera and Dillo, but:

$ sudo yum install chrome
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security
Setting up Install Process
No package chrome available.
Error: Nothing to do
$ sudo yum install chromium
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security
Setting up Install Process
No package chromium available.
Error: Nothing to do
$ sudo yum install opera
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security
Setting up Install Process
No package opera available.
Error: Nothing to do
$ sudo yum install dillo
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security
Setting up Install Process
No package dillo available.
Error: Nothing to do

Does anyone know what browsers are available (besides lynx, which is painful for me to use)?

(Sorry about the 'Linux' tag - I know it should be 'oracle-linux', but its not available).

It's called Konqueror, you may find it in Applications -> Internet menu.

Otherwise, when you have properly set up yum, you can issue:

   sudo yum install firefox

Thanks Marius. Isn't Konqueror KDE (I'm running Gnome)? Also, I don't use Firefox (too many bad choices and two virus/malware infections though FF). –  jww Dec 23 '13 at 20:52
    
What do you have under Applications -> Internet? –  MariusMatutiae Dec 23 '13 at 21:50

And, btw, no, I think konqueror exists in Gnome too. –  MariusMatutiae Dec 23 '13 at 21:52
    
Thanks Marius. I don't have anything under "Applications -> Internet" because its missing (the menuh has system and admin stuff, and almost no user stuff). Let me install ala carte and see if I can display it. Thanks again. –  jww Dec 23 '13 at 21:53
