You probably want elinks a text only browser. It runs from the console without xwindows and is so small that it will fit on your small hard drive Install it from /usr/ports/www/elinks. Run it like this: 'elinks http://www.google.com'. If you want a console graphical browser that works without X. Run , pkg_add -vr svgalib to install SVGAlib. Then install port /usr/ports/www/links and change install compile options to use svgalib instead of the default xwindows. run it like this: links -g -mode 640x480x64k http://www.google.com _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
