Binary distribution with OpenSSL

Hi,

I'm the Lynx maintainer for the MacPorts Project (https://www.macports.org), a ports system for OS X. As
part of our infrastructure, we distribute precompiled binaries for common build configurations,
subject to licensing restrictions.

Your COPYHEADER file contains what seemingly amounts to an OpenSSL exemption to the GPL, and it suggests
that you'd allow distribution of Lynx binaries alongside OpenSSL binaries. Am I interpreting it accurately?

EXTERNAL with lynx

I tried using EXTERNAL to play streams from vlc on a Linux platform.  That 
failed since the URL field would need to have a suffix of an URL to scan 
in order to enable playing of streams like .pls with vlc and lynx.  If 
that is possible using EXTERNAL, I didn't find it described in lynx.cfg. 
Might another way around this problem be some good entries in a .mailcap 
file?  If so, I could study the .mailcap file format and maybe come up 
with some good entries to share that will more completely enable mplayer 
and vlc working with lynx and share those with the list when I get them 
working.  Ultimately such a .mailcap file might be a little extra support 
for the lynx browser for users to download and install.  I have retired 
and my my own computer equipment nobody else uses so would have time to 
figure out as much as possible along these lines if there's interest. 
Finally, if for some of this the wheel has already been invented I don't 
see any good sense in reinventing such a wheel.

lynx processes, please clean up after your children ; -)

Hi,

prodded by an IRC snippet I’ll reproduce below, I just had a look:

tg <at> blau:~ $ ps x | fgrep lynx
17739 p7  ZW+     0:00.00 (lynx)
 4010 p7  I+      1:08.53 lynx

These are probably spawned by DNS. Please add the appropriate
wait*() calls to immediately reap them, and SIGCHLD handling.

06:20 < waressearcher2> I have 23 processes "[lynx] <defunct>" and they
                        consume 30% of my RAM its 300MB, how to remove
                        them ? they seem like zombie and I tryed to use
                        "kill -s SIGCHILD parentID" but it doesn't work,
                        how to solve it without rebooting ? looks like
                        they are all childs of normal lynx processes, I
                        don't want to kill normal ones, I have dozens lynx
                        open with
06:20 < waressearcher2>  web sites in screen and some of them have these
                        "[lynx] <defunct>", so I want to get rid of those
                        "defunct" ones
06:24 < waressearcher2> I don't know what are they, they just accumulated
                        over time, my system has 135 days uptime, and
                        there is only one "screen" run on it with 90 bash
                        consoles and I have 30 lynx processes and 24
                        <defunc> lynx processes, the total RAM is 1GB,
                        initially when I booted that system I had more
                        than 900MB free but little by little I 680MB
                        maximum and that is

lynx 2.8.7 auto-configure blows up on UnixWare

Hi,

Years back I installed Lynx 2.8.4 on UnixWare 2.1.2 (SVR4.2MP).
It built and runs great.  Thought it might be time to upgrade.

Just tried to install and build lynx 2.8.7 on the same platform
using auto-configure.  configure blew up with the message:

	checking if we have identified curses headers... none

The message is unhelpful and there doesn't seem to be anything
related in the PROBLEMS doc file or in lynx.cfg.   Hence I am
contacting your team.

The curses headers files are right where they should be:
	/usr/include/curses.h
	/usr/include/xcurses.h
	/usr/include/stdcurses.h

So is the library:
	/usr/lib/libxcurses.a

How can I tell configure where to find these files or to ignore
the error?

I've never had any trouble building C apps that use curses on this
platform: just #include <curses.h> and compile with -lcurses.

Sorry to bother you, but it should build on genuine SysV UNIX
from USL (pre-SCO).   I figured you'd want to know about.

trying to see if my website is visible to search engines via your text browser

Hi,

I just uploaded my new website created in Adobe Muse and was curious if it's visible to Google robots and other search engine crawlers. I'm not a coder so I don't know if there's something else that I need to do to test it. Please advise. Here's my site: www.soleilnyc.com.

Thanks!

Andrea LeHeup

Lynx connect_timeout problem...

Hi,

I usually use Lynx 2.8.8dev.15 on Linux machines.

I trying to use -connect_timeout=N options (N=60, for example, or less, just to try), but I seem it does not work...

Where do I wrong?
Thank you,

amazon has been fixed!

Or so my tests of lynx, both ours here at shellworld, and another one on a
  Debian shell which uses an earlier edition of lynx.
I checked both the /access page, and since I normally use the main site, 
checked there as well.
But this is me.
test for yourself.  if you find an error use the link below.

Hi Karen,

Ben asked me to check on the update with the amazon.com/access website
while he was out. The development team has indicated an update was
completed and that the page is working. They also mentioned they tested
it and that it no longer was giving the 204 errors.

Should there be any error when you try please let us know by using the
following link:

Amazon broken (HTTP 204)

Howdy,

Amazon broke Lynx about three months ago; I tried chatting with them
today, but they won't even give me a bug number (although they claim
they'll forward a message to their technical team).  Because "links"
works with Amazon, I figured I'd try asking y'all whether there's
something you can do.

There are actually two problems:

* The newer problem is that using Amazon's "mobile/accessibility"
subsite causes an HTTP 204 on this URL:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/ya?ref_=aw_bottom_links_ya

It looks like wget has the same problem.

* The other problem is that Amazon's main login claims that Lynx isn't
using cookies (this has been going on for years and is why I just login
through the mobile/accessibility subsite):

https://www.amazon.com/ap/signin?_encoding=UTF8&openid.assoc_handle=usflex&openid.claimed_id=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0%2Fidentifier_select&openid.identity=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0%2Fidentifier_select&openid.mode=checkid_setup&openid.ns=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0&openid.ns.pape=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fextensions%2Fpape%2F1.0&openid.pape.max_auth_age=0&openid.return_to=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fcss%2Fhomepage.html%3Fie%3DUTF8%26ref_%3Dgno_yam_ya

[...]  Oh, futz, Amazon's playing games with User-Agent, when I set mine
to "Mozilla/5.0" it works.  (You may substitute something stronger for
"futz".)

Figure I'll send this anyway in case it helps someone else.  :-(  I
haven't seen broken cookie behavior based on User-Agent before.

Thanks,
Aahz
