installing unix programs

hi everyone,

I'm new to the forums. I am in the process of learning unix. I have a problem installing a unix program. The program at question is Links. It is an internet browser. I have the INSTALL notes, but I'm not having much luck at all. Any ideas on how to install?

Do you mean lynx maybe?

Your system information please

$uname -a

Generally speaking, an RPM or tar packages installs just fine for Lynx. What is the step that you are getting a fault at? and what is the error?

I'm not in front of the computer at question at the moment. Will report error message later. I never new about Lynx before you guys told me. The one I was referring to was links version 2.1pre28 for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard . Perhaps this is different? I will go to my computer later on today, and do some digging.
