    Hello. I have downloaded Lynx to install on my Red Hat 9. Upon installing it tells me that I need Perl(cgi): Perl(CGI) is needed by lynx-2.8.5-11

    I downloaded the Perl and when I tried to install it, this is the message I got:
    package Perl-5.8.0-88.3 (which is newer than perl-5.8.0-88) is already installed

    Is it apparent to anyone what is going on? I am not sure if my Perl is the Perl(CGI) it is asking for. I appreciate your comments. LS

    Hello. Yes, I downloaded the RPM and I tried to installed it by using -Uvh "the filename" command. LS
