Welcome to FreeBSD!
/usr/local/bin/pressanykey: Command not found.
tset: terminal type linux is unknown
Terminal type? <I've tried vt100 and ANSI>
Sorry, you have encountered a bug in Lynx Ver. 2-4-2
Lynx now exiting with signal: 11
Exiting via interrupt: exit(0)
tput: tgetent failure: No such file or directory
Connection closed by foreign host.
In X it doesn't prompt for the terminal type... in the console, if I
press ctrl-c at the prompt it works... but is in 'dumb' terminal mode
and when I run any programs it errors out saying that terminal type
linux is unknown....
can anyone help? (my ISP won't listen)
