I'm new to Linux and have been working in the Terminal almost exclusively just to get the hang of the operating system. I tried, today, to install Lynx 2.8.6 on Ubuntu 8.04.1 through the recently installed [I]yum[I] command. However, it didn't want to install. I'll try it again later if I have to in order to bring the error message that I received up, but if anyone knows why it doesn't like Ubuntu that would be appreciated.
One more thing. The term "dependencies". What does it mean?
