starting lynx

Hi, I'm trying to start lynx and I typed lynx and it said bash command not found. I wondered if it's located in some directory like the "shutdown" command is located in "/sbin/shutdown"? I can't run X, so I'm kinda stuck, can't do much.

Try 'which lynx' or 'locate lynx'.

I'm using Mandrake (very similar to RedHat). Lynx is /usr/bin/lynx for me.

you can type the full path to lynx, or you can add that path to your $PATH environment variable so you can get away with just typing "lynx <url>"

a more general answer would be "just run a find":

cd /
find . -name "lynx"

you'll probably see a lot of useless "Permission denied" and "No such file or directory" output, but if you have lynx installed, you'll see some sort of response in the list that looks like "/yadda/bin/lynx". that's probably the path to your proggie.
